ALMOST 100 people are currently being held or are serving jail sentences for corruption offences in Spain, according to government figures.

Spain’s General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ)’s data showed those in prison for corruption had committed offences ranging from fraud, embezzlement, abusing positions of influence and mishandling official documents.

Around half of those in prison are serving sentences for embezzlement, while 22 are in jail for bribery, the second most common offence.
