The shady Cursach case
The corruption cases involving Jaume Matas, Maria Munar, Iñaki Urdangarin and others have had nothing on the Cursach case. It's in a league of its own, and developments last week only served to emphasise this. Three hundred people protested outside the court on Monday when Tolo Cursach made his first court appearance since his arrest. The protesters' targets were the investigating judge, Manuel Penalva, and the prosecutor, Miguel Ángel Subirán. A banner complained about corruption in the court of instruction. Demands were being made for Penalva and Subirán to be disqualified and arrested. Judge and prosecutor, it was claimed, had manipulated evidence.
