20 January 2013 @ 12:17

SPANISH president Mariano Rajoy believes it 'unlikely' that ex-treasurer and former senator of the PP, Luis Bárcenas, could have been paying out salary top-ups to party members in cash and off the books. A full corruption investigation has been launched after it was found Bárcenas held accounts in Switzerland and is believed to have paid out between 5,000 and 15,000 euros a month to party members. Rajoy (pictured) insists that all accounts covering wages and expenses are monitored by the Accounts Court, every cent is declared to the tax office, and that all financial matters are 'fully audited'.
