Ex-mayoress of Jerez ONLY arrested for embezzlement! What about her translation sins?!

Pilar Sánchez Muñoz (PSOE) is responsible for various entries here between 2005 and 2011. Now she’s been arrested -like half the Andalusian PSOE during the caso Edu– for complicity in the theft of educational subsidies:

En Cádiz, las pesquisas han salpicado a los responsables políticos de Mercajerez SA, la entidad controlada por el Ayuntamiento de Jerez de la Frontera que explota el mercado de abastos del municipio. Mercajerez recibió en diciembre de 2010 una ayuda para organizar cursos por importe de 142.695 euros. Sus responsables no sólo incumplieron el compromiso de contratar al menos al 60% de los alumnos durante los seis meses siguientes a la formación, uno de los requisitos de la ayuda, sino que habría subcontratado con terceros la totalidad del programa, incumpliendo también la normativa en este otro aspecto. Por su responsabilidad en estas irregularidades ha sido arrestada la exalcaldesa de Jerez del PSOE Pilar Sánchez Muñoz (2005-2011), que ocupó la presidencia de Mercajerez entre 2008 y 2011.

But, dear God, do I have to talk to Manos Limpias before anyone will take translation-related embezzlement seriously?!

Apropos of nothing, seen somewhere: Emilio Botín was so good in his lifetime that when he died he went straight to a fiscal paradise.

Well, not necessarily.
