The former head of Portugal’s Banco Espirito Santo, Ricardo Salgado, was put under house arrest on Friday after being questioned by a magistrate over his role in the bank’s collapse, his lawyer said.
Francisco Proenca de Carvalho called the measure “disproportionate” in remarks to the press after the 12-hour questioning.
On Monday the former banker was questioned by the state prosecutor, who decided to send him for further questioning in front of an investigating magistrate.
