Google’s Offices In Spain Raided By Tax Authorities

I'm noticing a strange trend in the news lately and it's starting to bug me. In the past few years, there has been more raids on technology companies than on drug cartels and international crime syndicates. I'm not saying Google, Apple, Facebook and others didn't do anything wrong, I just think maybe some of these countries might want to reexamine their priorities. Just a thought. confused

Spanish officials raided Google's Madrid offices on Thursday in a tax probe, authorities said, barely a month after the internet company had its headquarters in France searched on suspicion of tax evasion. A spokeswoman for Google said in a statement the company complied with fiscal legislation in Spain just as it did in all countries where it operated. The company was working with authorities to answer all questions, the spokeswoman added.
