Why would Inaki have to give up his passport? It's a bit much at this stage, isn't it.

In the U.S surrendering passport is often a condition of bail in a criminal matter once a person is indicted. Not sure what the procedures in Spain are, but it makes sense if the person is considered a "flight risk." I suppose Inaki is not so considered.

Palma Court has decided to lift the charge on the Infanta Cristina to consider that there is insufficient evidence to support the accusation.

Spanish princess cleared of suspicion in corruption probe - latimes.com

its a lose-lose situation for the SRF. some will say fair enough, there wasnt enough evidence, others will say, there wasnt enough evidence only because Cristina is the king's daughter. i am sure she knew but to prove it in court is a different matter.

Spot on.

Cristina is in a similar position to Amanda Knox - this will hang over her head for the rest of her life. P.S. only bringing up Knox as a comparison - I've no intention of going off topic and debating that mess. My point is that Cristina has been convicted in the court of public opinion. Period. End of story.

Quite right DOM and Gracie, she will have this attached to her for a very long time, if not the rest of her life. Can't say that the first thought that popped into my head wasn't, "well she is the King's daughter, why would they put her on trial". The best thing that they could do when this is all over is move out of Spain for a while, maybe until the children are grown and out of the house.

I agree princess gertrude I can see Cristina and the family moving away again.

Elena is very happy about the news, Felipe declines to comment and casareal expresses 'utmost respect' toward the judges' decision

La infanta Elena sobre la anulacin de la imputacin de su hermana: Estoy muy alegre por la noticia

Although the court annulled the imputation of IC in the Noos case, the door is still open for a possible later investigation for tax fraud or money laundering.

Finally Spain proved to be as bad as India when it comes to corruption..
If you are influential enough, there is never enough evidence..
We Indians wrongly blame our own jury as the only one that gets manipulated by the rich and powerful..No There are many such even in the "developed" world..and so nothing to be quite ashamed of..

This pic of Cristina reveals that she is very sad and depressed about the last events, she looks 10 years older then she is and very tired:

So true, and I feel so sorry for their children having to live with the aftereffects of this mess.

You can definitely tell this whole thing has taken a toll on her. Hopefully, she and her husband are shielding the children as much as they can.
