Five sentenced for writing illegal sales contracts and fraud in Palma

FIVE people have been sentenced to a total of almost 14 years in prison for tricking their employers out of €100,000 in 2009.

They wrote up 48 fake sales contracts with inexistent clients in order to obtain commission on the sales of books, encyclopaedias and other items.  

The head of the Palma branch, the head of administration and three salespeople invented 26 clients and 48 sales knowing that they were going to leave the company and go and work for the competition.

Each of them has been sentenced to two years and nine months for fraud, and fines amounting to approximately €1,350, as well as paying back €105,153 to the company.

      Well if the Infanta and her husband, noticeably shipped off to foreign shores, can walk on water how come these poor sods could not manage it? And how come the P.P. chap, Luis Barcenas, not yet banged up for obvious corruption, can walk about as if he is a saint? Money.
      You see there is a pecking order to corruption. The higher you get the more difficult it is to nail you even if the evidence is obvious to a mentally challenged 5 year old.
      To escape prosecution in Spain all you need do is make a bundle of money, by being completely corrupt. Easy peasy!

      Corruption is alive and well in Spain. From the top to the bottom. Lets hope the auditors never get to see the EU accounts.
