Rajoy unemployed' during a demonstration against bank fraud on June 16, 2012 in front of Spanish bank Bankia headquarters in Madrid. Spain's 'indignant' activists filed a criminal complaint on June 14, 2012 against the former management of Bankia, whose partial nationalisation helped push Madrid to seek a massive EU bailout. Last month, Bankia revised its 2011 results from a net profit of 309 million euros ($387 million) to a loss of nearly three billion euros and asked the state for a bailout of 19 billion euros, the largest in Spanish history.
