Ocean of corruption in Spain

PressTVGlobalNews · May 25, 2013

A senior Spanish judge says he will launch a second investigation into corruption allegations against the ruling People’s Party (PP). High Court Examining Magistrate Pablo Ruz said in a ruling that he would launch the probe into allegations that the former PP treasurer, Luis Barcenas, held a secret record of illegal cash donations that were purportedly channeled to Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other members of the party. The allegations have sparked anger among Spaniards who have to deal with high unemployment, harsh cutbacks in social welfare and an ailing economy.

In the first investigation, Barcenas had been accused of involvement in bribery, tax evasion and money laundering. The government of Prime Minister Rajoy has been blamed for the harsh austerity measures, which has led companies to shutdown and driven the unemployment rate above 26 percent. Corruption scandals have also hit Inaki Urdangarin, the son-in-law of Spain’s king. Urdangarin has allegedly embezzled millions of euros of public money paid to a company he managed several years ago.

  1. Los políticos en todas partes son totalmente obsceno y estúpido como vacas martillado. ¿Hubo algo de justicia a la izquierda en cualquier lugar en el planeta Tierra, los políticos se enfrentan a la horca y con razón. Muerte a los cerdos políticos y la libertad de todo el pueblo!
