Former Ahold chief executive, Cees van der Hoeven, and former chief financial officer, Michiel Meurs have both been named as defendants in the lawsuits. Also named as defendants in some of the civil actions brought in federal courts are Ahold's US Foodservice unit and its chief executive James Miller, Ahold chairman Henny de Ruiter and Ahold auditor Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, reported Reuters.
