Spain’s anti-graft chief quits over Panama link

Thursday, June 1, 2017

The anti-corruption prosecutor in charge of investigating members of Spain's ruling party has resigned after it emerged he holds a 25 percent stake in an offshore company.

Manuel Moix, who was in post for just four months, has denied any wrongdoing.

He confirmed he has a stake in a company in Panama, inherited from his father by him and his siblings.

The opposition Socialist Party argued this made him unfit to investigate prosecution.
