Spain’s BBVA placed under formal investigation in spying case

MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s High Court on Monday placed the country’s second-largest bank BBVA under formal investigation as part of a probe into an alleged spying case that dates back to 2004, the court said in a statement.

The decision follows a request by the anti-corruption public prosecutor last week and will see BBVA investigated on charges of bribery, disclosure secrets and corruption in relation to the company’s alleged dealings with former police chief Jose Manuel Villarejo.

In a statement, BBVA’s Executive Chairman Carlos Torres reiterated the company’s “firm commitment to clarifying the facts and complying with the law”.

News websites El Confidencial and Moncloa.com reported in January that BBVA had hired Villarejo’s firm, Grupo Cenyt, to investigate officials of construction company Sacyr  as part of efforts to stop a takeover bid by the company in 2004.
