Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is facing renewed calls to resign after text messages were published linking him to Luis Barcenas, former treasurer of the governing Popular Party.

Barcenas is currently awaiting trial for corruption and tax fraud after taking donations from construction magnates and handing them out to party leaders and supposedly that included Mr Rajoy – in cash.

The Prime Minister denies any unlawful activity and is expected to face questions about the scandal from reporters at a news conference while visiting Polish PM Donald Tusk on Monday.
