The former BBVA Security chief says he received 618,000 euros for his dismissal

Date: March 24, 2023 Time: 01:44:43

The former head of Security at BBVA Julio Corrochano has informed the judge investigating the alleged illegal contracts of the retired commissioner José Manuel Villarejo with that bank that in the agreement for which he left his post at the bank in April 2018 a penalty was established after 480,000 euros gross, to which was added a payment of 138,145 euros for a non-competition and non-contracting agreement. In total, the amount amounts to 618,145 euros.

In a letter of his defense of January 24, to which Europa Press has had access, the former director, investigated in the case, thus reacted to a court order that demanded from BBVA the documentation related to the process of departure of the directors that appear in the case as investigated and whose departure was as of March 1, 2018.

Corrochano indicates that these two amounts are the only ones received as a result of his departure because the amounts corresponding to the collection of the variable were frozen by the entity pending the completion of the procedure and “subject to his being acquitted of the crimes on which he is being investigated.” The letter, to which the agreement he refers to, also highlights that these amounts paid by the entity “are reflected in the IRPF returns” of the year 2018.

Extension of the instruction

In the same case, the Central Investigating Court number 6 has received a response from BBVA opposing the extension of the investigation, understanding that it is “exhausted” and therefore not necessary or relevant. He recalls that four years have passed since it was initiated and the investigation “has been intense and in-depth, to the extent that dozens of declarations have been made, BBVA has responded to a multitude of trades and an enormous amount of information has been incorporated into proceedings and documentation”.

“BBVA has responded to a multitude of trades and a huge amount of information and documentation has been incorporated into the records”

“There are also no proceedings pending to be resolved that are necessary to decide on the continuation of the procedure. In fact, what the private accuses intend to do with their latest requests for proceedings involves reinstructing what has already been investigated or, in other words, reopen decisions that had already been adopted by the instructor and even by the Criminal Chamber,” they add.

In another letter, to which Europa Press has also had access, the defense of the former head of Control 2022, and they hope that more documents to which they have recently obtained access will be added to the digital platform. Added to this is the fact that there are various statements pending practice from witnesses and experts that could lead to the proposition of some test procedure.
