(R) and ' For false and theft, PP, resignation!' (C) outside the Spanish National court in Madrid on July 15, 2013, during the hearing of People Party's (PP) former party treasurer over a slush fund scandal. Popular Party's disgraced former treasurer Luis Barcenas was called to appear in the Madrid court after conservative daily El Mundo last week published what it said was an original page from Barcenas' slush fund ledger and delivered the document to the court. The excerpt purportedly showed extra payments from a secret fund to party officials including Rajoy when he was a minister under then prime minister Jose Maria Aznar in 1997, 1998 and 1999.
