Corruption as a way of life

Says Alexander Bewick's Soap Box: "Luis Roldán Ibáñez is a free man today, having spent 15 of a 30 year prison sentence in jail. At age 66 he is entitled to receive a pension although he has never returned the €10million he stole as the first civilian to head the Guardia Civil. "I have paid dearly for what I did," he says, "but there are those who got away scot free." Of course there are, lots of them, but none as corrupt as this head of one of the country's principal police forces from 1986 to 1993 - plenty of time to steal plenty of money." See the whole article here.
