The Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy on Wednesday in a court hearing emphasised’t know of the corruption of members of his conservative people’s y (PP).

Rajoy is a witness in the lawsuit. That is about large-scale corruption and fraud in the regions of Madrid and Valencia, where the members of his party involved would have been. The campagnekas of the PP would have benefited from the embezzlement of various sums of money.

Rajoy said indignantly nothing of such practices is to know, and asked out loud whether there is not a wrong witness is called. The Spanish prime minister is in itself nothing of the suspect or accused.

In the affair in 2007 at the reels, be businessmen and ex-members of the PP accused of abuse of power, corruption, tax evasion and money laundering. Many kickbacks would be paid to local authorities for building permits or orders of the government.
