No tax amnesty for fraudsters in the Basque Country (unlike in Spain)

The ultra-conservative government of Spain proclaimed days ago, amidst draconian budgetary cuts (which do not affect the military, police nor the monarchy) that they would also apply a tax amnesty to fiscal fraudsters if they declared their hidden properties paying an extra 10% only. 

This has not been welcomed by almost anybody and the four Basque chartered governments are already rejecting to apply it. Gipuzkoa and Biscay, ruled by Basque nationalists, have already declared that they won't implement this measure because they find it ethically unacceptable

In the regions of Araba and Navarre, ruled in coalition by both Spanish nationalist parties (PP and PSOE) the key is the position of the Spanish socialdemocrats, who have already declared that won't support this pro-fraudster measure, making effectively impossible for the PP to impose their pro-rich doctrines so bluntly.
