FORMER CATALAN PREMIER AND ENTIRE FAMILY FACING TRIAL OVER SUSPECT FORTUNE

El Pais reported on 17 July that a court says there is enough evidence to try the one-time regional chief, Jordi Pujol, his wife and their 7 children for taking bribes in exchange for government contracts and other favours.  This follows a 7½-year investigation into the origins of a fortune amassed by former Catalan premier.
