Pescanova's former executives tried for falsification of accounts
Manuel Fernández de Sousa leaving the courts
The top managers of Pescanova between 2009 and 2013 are sitting in the dock almost seven years after the bankruptcy of the company. The process, which now reaches its climax, will analyze how its accounts were made up to keep an industrial "giant" beset by debt afloat.
The trial starts Monday in Madrid and is scheduled to last until March, four months during which the 19 defendants and numerous witnesses and experts will pass through the headquarters of the National Court in San Fernando de Henares.
