Spain's Prime Minister, Felipe Gonzalez, was summoned to appear before parliament next Wednesday to explain how the former head of the Civil Guard, Luis Roldan, managed to vanish last week while being investigated for embezzlement, Reuter reports from Madrid.

The decision to summon Mr Gonzalez to throw light on what is becoming the Socialists' most severe political crisis since they came to power, was taken by parliamentary whips.

Mr Roldan, five months ago tipped for interior minister, is now Spain's most wanted man, with 200 police on his trail.
