Spain's elite shaken by 'blackmailer' cop's voice recordingsHe may be behind bars, but a former police chief still strikes fear into the highest levels of the Spanish state thanks to his covert recordings of compromising conversations with the all-powerful. Spain's socialist Justice Minister Dolores Delgado is the latest high-profile personality to be embarrassed by leaked recordings of a past conversation with the "blackmailer," as Jose Manuel Villarejo is now known.When Mariano Rajoy was conservative prime minister, Villarejo is suspected of having taken part in "operation Catalonia" with the aim of fabricating "fake information against separatist parties" and also far-left party Podemos, Delgado told lawmakers. Villarejo allegedly earned considerable money by threatening or blackmailing people.According to the El Pais daily, Villarejo is suspected of having received millions to create a damaging case against a son of Equatorial Guinea's leader Teodoro Obiang Nguema, a minister who was in conflict with his own brother; the vice president.
