Has the reporter been seen since or is he still recovering. ?

More seriously, how long is this investigation expected to take. ?

I think most of SRF members must think Infanta Pilar should "shut up" sometimes... Her comments don't help a lot...
And, about blaming the gossip programs for Iñaki's situation it's not fair, really. Of course, these programs are hateful and terrible treating the information but also the serious media have spread the whole situation and I do not blame them.
About Spanish justice... I would like to think be are all equal for the law, but there's people in jail for less than what Iñaki is supposed to have done... And I have no doubt that his punishment will be these last three or four months, that probably have been a hell for him... I do not think the judge is going to condemn him (a penalty, at most). And most of people will say it's because he's not guilty but most of us will think it's because who he is...

I do not understand... I think it's normal if he arrives to the Judge's Office like any other citizen. This would be the only thing in which he will be an equal, so... (well, I hope, probably they will find the way to spare him the humiliation...)

Obviously he is not that equal ...

Amid fevered speculation that the duke will receive special treatment because of his royal connections, the investigating magistrate last week accepted a petition that his statement be heard behind closed doors and without the usual procedure of video recording the session.
He may also be allowed to be driven into the court building to avoid walking past the scores of press expected to gather for the hearing.

For those who understand Spanish... We have just watched on TV in Spain a special program about Iñaki.
You'll find it here

http://www.lasexta.com

The program is called "laSexta Columna" and they've done a special program about Iñaki. You can not watch it right now, I've tried and it's not available yet... Maybe tomorrow!

Nothing like a criminal scandal to start the hair turning grey, Inaki looks "worse for wear" in these pics, IMO!

Inaki Urdangarin, the husband of Princess Cristina, and his lawyer Mario Pascual Vives arrive at the courthouse of Palma de Mallorca to give evidence during the 'Palma Arena trial' on February 25, 2012 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The son-in-law of King Juan Carlos of Spain, Inaki Urdangarin, Duke of Palma will testify in court over allegations that he misused millions of euros of public funds, allocated to organise sports and tourism events, during his time a chairman of a non-profit foundation from 2004 to 2006. Public prosecutors suspect the non-profit foundation named 'Instituo Noos', headed by Urdangarin, of siphoning away funds from public contracts awarded to companies run by Urdangarin and his business partners

Yes, he looks pretty haggard and tired. I doubt that he or Cristina had much sleep last night.

No I can't imagine there's much happiness at the moment!
