Globovisión's main shareholder said to have violated Law on Banks
A legal action was filed Monday with the Attorney General Office
Aranguren underscored, "We have come before Attorney General Office Luisa Ortega Díaz to request an investigation to determine how Raúl Gorrín, the owner of a financial institution, has bought a media outlet in our country, thus violating Section 12, paragraph 8 of the Law on Banks and Other Financial Institutions."
The attorney stated that the sale of Globovisión to Raúl Gorrín "is void."
"Attorney Ortega Díaz must explain Venezuelans how Conatel (The National Telecommunications Commission) approved the sale and how this law came to be disregarded," he stressed.
More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
