The denuncia accused Diaz of deceit, dereliction of prosecution duties, and disseminating of secret information in his meeting with Rato, who is currently under investigation by the Audiencia Nacional for major money laundering.

Diaz has announced that he will come forward on Friday to share what occurred during the meeting on July 29.

The minister claims that they spoke of personal matters and not of official business related to Rato’s case, while Rato holds that they spoke about his situation.

The PP, Diaz’s party, has responded that PSOE wants to ‘make a case where there is none’.
