Home of Ex-IMF Head Rato Searched in Tax Investigation

a court statement said on Thursday that Spanish judges ordered a search of the Madrid home of former International Monetary Fund chief Rodrigo Rato as part of an investigation into tax paid on his personal wealth. Two official sources separately confirmed that a search at his home had focused on details of Rato's personal wealth. Rato is a former Spanish economy minister who was long a leading light of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's center-right Popular Party but is now implicated in two separate judicial cases.
