Masters investigation mostly shelved

  • The scandal had been at the top of the political agenda for weeks

The investigation into supposed fraudulent masters degrees given to politicians, mainly from the PP party, has been shelved.

The scandal had been at the top of the political agenda for weeks but the decision comes after the Supreme Court said it saw no real offence by PP leader Pablo Casado in his degree, a ruling that caused the rest of the investigation to fold. The case is still open against officials who allegedly faked part of the degree of the ex-president of the Madrid regional government.
