MADRID (Reuters) - The Bank of Spain said on Tuesday it would open new proceedings to decide the fate of Santander Chief Executive Alfredo Saenz based on a new banking ethics law which was passed last Friday and could change how the supervisor evaluates the case.

The Bank of Spain has to decide whether Saenz, who holds a criminal conviction and could be barred from his post, is fit to continue in his role at the helm of the euro zone's biggest bank.

The central bank also said in a statement it had dropped previous proceedings based on the old law.
