Spain: Ex-IMF Chief Rato Says He Will Cooperate With Justice After Tax Officials Search Home

Former International Monetary Fund chief Rodrigo Rato says he plans to cooperate with justice officials after investigative tax agents searched his apartment and an office in Madrid. Rato told the leading El Pais newspaper early Friday that he was "at home and free" after authorities took him from his home to be present during a search of one of his offices. Rato, a former Spanish economy minister, was also present Thursday during the hours-long search of his apartment. The court handling the case said the investigation is secret.
