Judge's wife fired for cashing in on Madrid train bomb trials

Elisa Beni, the press officer of the Madrid High Court of Justice (and wife of High Court Judge Javier Gómez Bermúdez) has been fired from her job for publishing a book about her husband's experiences during the trial last year of the Madrid train bombers. The General Council of the Judiciary, Spain's judicial watchdog, accused both she and her husband of professional misconduct.

So it's not just in the UK that the media-value of tragedy has become a commodity to be exploited by people who should know better!
