CGD saw consolidated profits of €496 million in 2018, well above its €51.9 million in profits registered in 2017, the bank said last Friday.
The non-executive chairman of Portugal’s state-owned bank Caixa Geral de Depósitos said on Friday the bank is analysing “management acts” from the past to possibly subject former managers to civil liability suits.
Rui Vilar said at a media conference on the presentation of the bank’s results for 2018 that following legal opinions by experts the bank initiated an analysis of cases with the support of lawyers.
The bank has faced controversy since last week, following the disclosure of the preliminary version of the bank’s audit, requested by the government in 2016, by the former Left Bloc deputy Joana Amaral Dias.
