Disgraced banker freed thanks to Franco fans
He was remanded in jail pending an investigation but could be granted release for €300,000 bail to await trial from the comfort of his one of his several homes in Spain.
It emerged on Wednesday that the financial guarantee has been given by the Alonso Garcia brothers, Jaime Francisco and Jose Angel, who used four properties on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura as a guarantee. You can be sure Mario has millions of black money stashed around the globe to pay back his fascist friends.
The brothers are high ranking members of the Francisco Franco Foundation, an organization dedicated to the memory of General Franco, the dictator who ran Spain with an iron fist for 40 years until his death in 1975.
Conde, who became a symbol of the “get-rich-quick” culture in Spain in the late 1980s and early 1990s, was chairman of Banesto when it was taken over in 1993 after an audit revealed a shortfall of €3.6 billion euros ($4.1 billion).
He was sentenced to 20 years in jail in 2002 for embezzlement and fraud but was released on parole in 2005 and declared himself insolvent to avoid paying the compensation ordered by the courts when he was sentenced for his offenses at Banesto.
He was arrested, along with his son, daughter, and her husband in April on suspicion of using front companies to channel some €13m stashed in accounts in the UK, Switzerland and Luxemburg, back to Spain. from The Local with thanks
Since the fall of Mario Conde hundreds of politicians and businessmen have been charged with corruption in Spain, but all except one or two are still free.

The Zika virus has been cynically blown into A MASSIVE CAMPAIGN OF LIES to justify BILLIONS given to criminal corrupt Chemical and Vaccine companies. The latest headlines refer to two new studies “clinching” the Zika-microcephaly connection. However, the use of these studies is nothing more than cruel propaganda to justify the greed and hype. It’s possible that having the harmless Zika virus when pregnant is ONE FACTOR in a very few cases of the rare microcephaly condition. But there are hundreds of other possible factors!
Next step will be to sell everyone an expensive Vaccine.
Consider the following 10 points , and the ‘Op against Brazil’ story below it
#1) ‘The microcephaly cases in Brazil were caused by larvicide chemicals, not by zika’
A group of doctors from South America are now saying the brain deformations the world is witnessing are caused by the mass fumigation of low-income Brazilian people with a chemical larvicide, not by mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus.

In making a deal with Turkey, the EU is entrusting refugees to a government that cares little for their safety – and sponsors the terrorists they are fleeing from, writes Marienna Pope-Weidemann

European governments leading the charge in the ‘war on terror’ have bought the right to turn their backs on its casualties for a cool £4.6 billion by striking their deal with Turkey. In exchange for the funds and loosened visa restrictions on Turkish citizens, the European Union has been able to violate its international obligations and outsource its refugee crisis.

The Madrid City Council rejects “any mechanism by which foreign companies can sue in private courts measures taken in the public interest, such as its decision to stop using glyphosate or redistricting of funeral services”, as in its current form would allow trade agreements that the European Union wants to formalize with Canada (CETA, for its acronym in English) and United States (TTIP, for its acronym in English)… Continue reading Madrid joins Cities that reject the TTIP Capitalist Coup
Leaked Tapes Show Michel Temer’s Henchmen Led Dilma Rousseff Coup in BrazilMichel Temer and his Horrible Henchmen
#DilmaRousseff Recordings released on Monday tell the world what Brazil already knows in revealing that the political establishment orchestrated a plot to overthrow the democratically elected leader.
On Monday, Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo revealed audio recordings of a conversation between the country’s planning minister, Romero Juca, and Sergio Machado, former CEO of state-owned oil company Petrobras subsidiary Transperto, calling to oust Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, as part of a bid to derail an ongoing corruption investigation under which the two are involved.
The high-ranking Juca serves as the president of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB), the same political party as interim leader Michel Temer and other leading impeachment figures, including deposed lower house leader Eduardo Cunha and senate leader Renan Calheiros.
Juca immediately stepped down from his government post a few hours after the recordings were released, but the ever-unraveling threads of the coup plot threaten to completely dismantle the Temer government.
The Impeachment Coup
The impeachment proceedings against Rousseff are not a matter of corruption, but rather for borrowing from the federal savings bank to preserve social welfare programs facing short-term budgetary shortfalls caused by an international recession. The effort to impeach was initially led by Eduardo Cunha, who then served as the leader of Brazil’s lower legislative chamber.
Brazilians suspect that Cunha, considered the country’s most corrupt politician, bribed his parliamentary colleagues to advance a vote in favor of impeachment. The politician was featured in the Panama Papers and is known to have several dozen Swiss Bank accounts.
