April 15, 2016

Spain’s acting Industry Minister Jose Manuel Soria has resigned. Some background on resignation of Spain’s industry minister, Jose Manuel Soria, over Panama is here.

It comes after his name was linked to offshore companies in Panama and Jersey at the beginning of the week.

Two Spanish media outlets say they have seen documents proving he headed an offshore firm.

Jose Manuel Soria is a member of the right-wing Partido Popular; which lost the recent general election, but is still in government, as a new government has not been formed yet.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

The Spanish Industry Minister Jose Manuel Soria has resigned after he was named in the Panama Papers. He may evade tax through Panama and Jersey. …

Soria is the second government minister to resign because of what is revealed in the Panama Papers. Earlier, the Icelandic Prime Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson resigned.
