Infanta Cristina of Spain, Duchess of Palma has been charged with tax evasion and money laundering. She has been summoned to court on March 8th.

Infanta Cristina is the youngest daughter of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain. Her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin, is at the centre of a corruption scandal over allegations regarding the misappropriation of several million euros of public funds when he was head of the non-profit Noos Institute. Iñaki Urdangarin has so far appeared twice before the Balearic Court.
Last summer, the Duchess of Palma had her first imputation suspended by a Spanish court due to lack of evidence. Infanta Cristina with her husband and children have been living in Geneva, Switzerland for the past few months.
The news is both very damaging and worrying for the future Spanish Monarchy which after many decades of popularity has been plagued by scandals and bad publicity.

    Kitty Hogan,
    I sure do agree with you, the king and queen both need to be gone, and let F/L take over and return the country to the people. The selfishness of both, JC/S and their daughter needs to be sent out of the country and never to return. I just feel so sorry for the children of C/I for they are the ones that will suffer the rest of their lives over what their parents did.

    um, Kitty Hogan, you sure about what you just said? It’s the YOUNG people who are being arrested for corruption, not the King and Queen.

  4. Marg says:

    I believer she has been called to give evidence but has not actually been charged at this time. Depending on her questioning charges may yet be filed.
