Hundreds of people protested against corruption in Madrid as a new corruption scandal threatened to further erode confidence in politicians, already damaged by Spain's sharp economic downturn. The centre-right newspaper El Mundo reported that senior Popular Party members collected undeclared salaries, mainly from private companies. Citing 'five reliable sources of successive management boards of the party', the newspaper said former Popular Party treasurer Luis Barcenas distributed envelopes containing 5,000-15,000 euros ($6,500 -20,000) to party officials on top of their official salaries during two decades.
