A corruption scandal which has plagued Spain’s People’s Party for months has intensified.
Dutch NOS TV reports today (translated):
The government of the Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy has fallen. A majority in parliament voted for a vote of no confidence against him. …
It is the first time in the democratic history of Spain that the parliament is sacking a sitting prime minister. The reason is one of the biggest corruption scandals ever in the country.
Of the 350 MPs, 180 voted in favor of the motion, which also appoints [social democrat PSOE party leader] Sánchez as the temporary successor of Rajoy. …
Last week party members of Prime Minister Rajoy‘s conservative Partido Popular (PP) were sentenced to long prison sentences and high fines of up to 4 million euros. They had let themselves be corrupted for years by businessmen, in exchange for lucrative orders. The sentences in the years long case rose to 52 years in prison.
Not only the individual politicians and businessmen, but also the party was punished for the scandal. The PP was fined 245,000 euros, because the party has benefited from a corrupt system. Prime Minister Rajoy himself has insisted from the outbreak of the scandal on that he knew nothing, something that the judge has called “not sufficiently credible“.
