Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has strongly denied media claims that he and other members of the governing Popular Party received secret payments.

 

El Pais newspaper published photographs of ledgers showing payments to Popular Party figures on Thursday.

 

It said Rajoy had collected 25,200 euros a year between 1997 and 2008.

 

Rajoy and his party were elected by a landslide win in November 2011 on a promise to reduce the high public deficit.
