Ahold CFO facing possible jail term

Reports out of the Netherlands suggest that prosecutors will today wind up
their case against former Ahold executives, charged over their alleged roles in
the accounting scandal at the supermarket group three years ago.

Prosecutors are expected to demand jail time if any are found guilty.

Among those charged is Michael Meurs, ex-chief financial officer, accused of
falsifying documents and misleading Ahold accountants.

Others on trial on similar charges are Cees van der Hoeven, former chief
executive, Jan Andreae, a former executive board member, and Roland Fahlin,
former supervisory board member
