FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2012 file photo Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy pauses during a news conference at the Moncloa Palace in Madrid. Spain's governing Popular Party insists its financial accounts are totally legal and denies a newspaper report of regular under-the-table payments to leading members, including current Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. The scandal first broke when after the National Court reported that former party treasurer Luis Barcenas amassed an unexplained euro 22 million ($30 million) in a Swiss bank account several years ago. In a statement Thursday Jan. 31, 2013, the party denied the existence of "hidden accounts" or "the systematic payment to certain people of money other than their monthly wages."
