Bank boss jailed for defrauding elderly clients of six-figure sum
09 June 2013 @ 11:40

A BANK manager who swindled three elderly customers out of over 223,000 euros is facing prison.

Belarmino de la Fuente's appeal to the Supreme Court failed and the judge has upheld his three-and-a-half-year sentence as imposed by the Provincial Court of León.

He was manager of Caja España in Castrocontrigo (León) from 1996 until 2008, and his elderly customers, husband and wife Roque and Delia and Roque's brother Segismundo had a 'great relationship of friendship and trust' with the accused, the court found.

They had a very limited education and practically no knowledge of finances, and when they signed a series of papers, they believed these were just to authorise a withdrawal from their accounts.
