“A further blow to home owners was the news that the government had shelved plans to increase prison sentences to anyone found guilty of crimes related to property scams. Prior to the local elections in May, the government had pledged to reform the penal code to stiffen prison sentences for anyone convicted of crimes related to urban corruption.

Oh well, so much for election promises…. probably too many brothers, cousins and uncles involved.
Spain coming down hard on corruption?
About as much chance as Osama bin Laden playing Alladdin in your local panto this Christmas.
