Gurtel: Luis Barcenas bail set at €200,000

BAIL for the PP’s former treasurer has been set at €200,000 after prosecutors demanded he be jailed for over 42 years last week.

The ex-treasurer was arrested in 2013 after being considered as a flight risk by an investigating judge along fears he might destroy evidence related to the Gurtel case.

Luis Barcenas is charged with money-laundering and tax fraud in relation to the Gurtel corruption case.

The scandal involved illegal party donations and kickbacs from top ranking Spanish officials and businessmen.

  1. “The ex-treasurer was arrested in 2013 after being considered as a flight risk by an investigating judge along fears he might destroy evidence related to the Gurtel case.” Charged with money laundering, tax fraud, et al and found to have more than 1MM euros in Swiss accounts – what has changed to get him out of custody with (only) 200K Bail? Will he be Party Treasurer again, perhaps run for elected Office with the PM, or President of the EU, or even better – A PLANNING OFFICER FOR A GROWING TOWN HALL. Now that’s $$!
