I still tend to adhere to the original meaning of tragedy in that a person is punished for their hubris. I think this situation is a fitting use of the word.
But I also feel that he was pursued so strongly because of who he was. I was under the impression that there's a lot of this "wheeling and dealing" and greasing of palms in Spanish politics, as well as other countries (yes, including the US!), and the bigger fish get hunted and made an example of before the little ones.
