MADRID Feb 12 Spain's Supreme Court partially
annulled an official pardon that was granted in 2011 to
Santander Chief Executive Alfredo Saenz, who was
convicted for false accusations against debtors, a court
spokesman said on Tuesday.
The court ruling reinstates a sentence barring Saenz, 70,
from working as a banker for a period of three months. However,
the pardon of other terms of his sentence still stand, the
Saenz was convicted of making false accusations against
debtors when he headed Santander-owned bank Banesto in 1994. He
was pardoned by the former Socialist government.
A spokeswoman for Santander, one of the euro zone's biggest
banks, said there was no comment on the court's decision.
