Palma.—Jose Castro, the judge investigation the Palma Arena corruption scandal in which the former Partido Popular President of  the Balearics, Jaume Matas, is deeply involved is apparently investigating Matas’s allegedly hidden assets  in the United States.
The former President and Spanish Minister for the Environment  while Jose Maria Aznar was Prime Minister, is currently serving a nine month sentence for crimes related to the Palma Arena corruption investigation and faces a number of other charges which have yet to come to court.
Jaume Matas moved to Washington almost immediately after losing the election in 2007.
