Yes, but only if they were directly complicit in acts of fraud.

Juan Pablo But what they did should be considered criminal and then if it were they should go to prison.

Simply because the economy sours isn't justification to place Bank CEOs and managers in jail. When illegal fraud is commited, when violate of the law is performed - that justifies a lengthy jail sentence, and maybe even an imposed fine. But having the economy go bad under your watch as a bank CEO should not come with a prison sentence. That's ludicrous!
