The scandal claims the Belgian government
The Fortis scandal claimed another vivtim this wek, when the Belgian Prime Minister was forced to resign after being caught out trying to influence the judges in a decision about whether or not the Belgian state paid enough for the shares of Fortis.
The scummy shareholders want to be compensated because they did not thing they got enough for thir shares, yet without the state stepping in the Bank could have gone under with much of teh savings of ordinary Belgian folk.
As mentioned befoer Fortis had a lot of money tied up in the Madoff pyrami scheme. They semed to be involved n everything which was unsafe, wrecklessly gambling their saver's money, just so the diectors could eat foie gras on the French Riviera nand could drive big cars around Brussels.
