Spanish telecom giant Telefonica is hiring as an adviser the former
IMF chief Rodrigo Rato, who appeared in court last month in a fraud
case, the company said Friday.
Telefonica agreed to name Rato, 63, as a member of its advisory
boards for Latin America and Europe, for his "experience and career
path", it said in a statement. "He has no executive function and it is a
job that does not require exclusivity," a Telefonica spokesman told AFP.
"He will join in the coming days," the spokesman added, saying that Rato
would earn a salary but declining to say how much. Rato served as
Spain's economy minister between 1996 and 2004 and then as managing
