Former IMF chief Rodrigo Rato has arrived at court for his corruption trial.

Rato is in the dock with 65 other former executives on charges relating to the alleged misuse of company credit cards while he was CEO of Spain’s Bankia Group.

Rato denies the allegations.


Rato is the second IMF boss in the dock. His successor Dominique Strauss-Kahn was tried last year on pimping charges, but cleared.

And current IMF boss Christine Lagarde faces court in December over a huge state payout to a French businessman when she was finance minister.
