Sandra Ortega: The richest woman lengthens the judicial mess with her old manager

The judicial mess of Sandra Ortega and his ex-Manager, José Leyte, is far from ending. This week, one of the trials began by the two complaints that the businesswoman introduced against the one who was the collaborator of her, which she accuses of misappropriation, disloyal administration and documentary falsehood. But things did not come out like Ortega thought. And is that Leyte admitted that there were signatures in the documents that endorsed the loans to Mate Room that were not carried out by Sandra Ortega but said signatures were imitated, but always with the "authorization" of the businesswoman. The declaration gives one turn to the case because, according to the Lawyer of the Ex Manager, the jurisprudence determines that "an imitated signature with authorization is not falsification".

With this new scenario, Sandra Ortega, who was at the courthouse to be questioned as a witness, has not been able to give his headquarters by the risk that his statement had criminal consequences and not be adequately assisted by a lawyer in those Moments Thus, now the view is suspended and the judge will open a new period for the parties to submit allegations. Also the banks that are personally found themselves in the cause as harmed, which should now decide whether or not they accuse Ortega for the falsehood of the signatures.

The complaints and crossed accusations of Leyte and Ortega began with the dismissal of the ex-manager, who until then had been the right hand first of Rosalía Mera, mother of Sandra, and after Ortega itself. The former collaborator of him then undertook a struggle in the courts to claim the compensation he believed that he corresponded after his years of service in Rosp Corunna, the Family Office through which he handled the investments of the Mena-Ortega family. Sandra was limited to offering a compensation as a high manager by adducing loss of trust and given a pre-notice of six months of the dismissal of it. For the former manager that amount was insufficient and he wanted compensation according to the 18 years of service in the company. The trial was held in June and she is pending that sentence is given.

It was after that demand from José Leyte when Sandra Ortega contraticed with two complaints: the one that this week has led the courts for the delayed financial support that Rosp Corunna would have given Room Mate and the signatures of those guarantees and another by undue appropriation. According to Ortega's lawyers, the former manager has perceived money behind him of ancient chief of him in some operations. This trial has not yet begun.

The judicial causes put Sandra Ortega in a difficult and uncomfortable situation, more if we take into account the discretion with which he has always handled his life and his businesses. As Loc published last June, the pandemic has unevenly affected the investments of it. He has won a lot of money with Pharmamar, which in 2020 had a profit of 137 million euros and of which Ortega has 10% of the shares, but the businesswoman has been ballast by the crisis in the hotel sector because of the pandemic by the pandemic His participation, inherited from his mother, in the Room Mate chain.
