    Blow to Rajoy: 29 members of the ruling party convicted for corruption

    Rajoy who last year became the first Spanish prime minister in office to testify as a witness, told the court he was not aware of the party’s accounting practices

    A Spanish court has issued hefty prison sentences for politicians and business people involved in a kickbacks-for-contracts scheme that helped fund Spain’s governing party. The National Court’s decision is a major blow for Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s Partido Popular, fined 245,000 Euros because it benefited from the illegal scheme that was in place between 1999 and 2005.
