Low intensity day in the Bankia trial. The three witnesses who testified yesterday oscillated between the "I do not remember" and the very generic account of what their functions were and their knowledge about the great decisions that were made in the BFA-Bankia group. The ex-director general of Bankia's parent company (BFA), Manuel Lagares, gave the phrase of the day when he described as "a little atypical" the fact that the 2011 accounts were drawn up without the audit report. A situation that occurred just nine days before the resignation of Rodrigo Rato and that accelerated the collapse of the banking colossus. Atypical but "not strange", he said, because the group was very complex, it came from the integration of seven boxes and barely had a year of life. "I understood that it was part of the normalization process," he told the court of the National Court, which assesses whether investors were cheated in the Bankia IPO.
