NETHERLANDS: Ex-Ahold CEO received no Uruguay summons, says lawyer
Cees van der Hoeven, the former chief executive of troubled Dutch retailer Ahold, has received no summons from Uruguay regarding a fraud investigation there, according to his lawyer.
"We have seen no official document from any official from Uruguay," Michail Wladimiroff, lawyer for Van der Hoeven, told Reuters. "All I know is what you know - each newspaper is parroting the other."
An Interpol official and a judge said last week that a court in Uruguay had issued a summons to Van der Hoeven. A judge in Uruguay is investigating an alleged case of fraud at investment company Velox, which was Ahold's partner in its Argentine subsidiary Disco between 1998 and 2002.
