MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's anti-corruption prosecutor has called for a 42-and-a-half years prison sentence for the ruling party's former treasurer, Luis Barcenas, for crimes ranging from fraud to money laundering, a court source said on Friday.

Barcenas, who has been in custody since June 2013, has already admitted to channeling millions of euros of cash donations from construction magnates into the pockets of People's Party (PP) leaders.
