Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, right, and Popular Party's General Secretary, Dolores Cospedal, left, sit as a member of the Party gestures for the press to leave prior to an emergency meeting at the Popular Party headquarter in Madrid, Spain, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. 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". Spain's top prosecutor says there is sufficient cause to investigate fresh allegations of irregular financing of Spain's governing Popular Party and that if necessary Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy would be called in for questioning.
