The arrest warrant against businessman Cabal Peniche and his wife, Teresa Pasini Bertán, is for the crime of fraud for 30 million dollars, that is, some 600 million pesos against a subsidiary of the company Crédito Real, which made a loan to acquire Grupo Radiópolis.
A judge in Mexico City granted an arrest warrant against businessman Carlos Cabal Peniche and his wife, Teresa Pasini Bertán, for the crime of fraud for 30 million dollars against a subsidiary of the company Crédito Real, which made a loan to acquire Grupo Radiópolis. The arrest of the couple was ordered by Héctor Fernando Rojas Pacheco, Control Judge of the Accusatory Criminal Procedure System of Mexico City, assigned to Judicial Management Unit Number 12.
According to the newspaper Reforma, Teresa Pasini, through the company Nuncio Accipiens, requested the loan to allegedly finance the purchase of the other half of Grupo Radiópolis from Televisa. According to the media El Financiero, investigating agents of the Mexico City District Attorney's Office are already looking for the couple.
Cabal Peniche has been accused of abusing the Fondo Bancario de Protección al Ahorro (Fobaproa), created in 1990, which in 1994, under then PRI president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León, absorbed the overdue portfolio of the banks established in Mexico, and even capitalized them.
In 2001, after seven years out of Mexico, but imprisoned in Australia, three federal judges of that country approved the extradition of banker Cabal to Mexico to answer for the charge of bank fraud. In 2009, the banker was definitively acquitted and recovered his assets that had been seized by the then Attorney General's Office.
