Well. At least he has the good sense to celebrate a low key birthday. Probably one of the few times he has exercised good judgement recently.

Heights of sycophancy if not insulting the judicial process. We can understand this if it is happening in an absolute or atleast Thai-style monarchy..
Whats the need for a democratically elected PM to suck up to that 'infanta'?

Rajoy is as corrupt as the political system, I am not surprised to see them patting on each other's backs.

What would surprise me is if it went any further for Cristina than answering a few questions. Her lawyers will do the rest.

That's right. I doubt the judge even has energy going any further.
Rajoy and his power have been harassing the judge the last few months, as soon as Cristina was imputed, the prosecutor accused the judge with his personal agenda. Did the prosecutor not hear of Isabel Pantoja ? Of course he was taking the order from his boss, the minister of Justice whose boss is Rajoy. Christina's sales of 13 properties without paying tax was an identity error ? He really thought the Spaniards were idiots.

its nepotism of the worst kind
the spanish mp should say that justice is supposed to be independent or say nothing at all as its not his business, as if he had deeper knowledge about details.
i really hope that he and his corrupt lot will have to face justice one day themselves but of course like in so many other countries the ruling elite is not equal in front of justice.

i have the bad feeling that when jc is gone, spain will be paralyzed by a massive power struggle between monarchy and politics.

Does this mean that she gets to avoid the media outside?

I would suggest that if the Spanish Primeminister has evidence of Infanta Christina's innocence, he should lodge it as soon as possibe with the Court/Judge and swear under oath the evidence that he has!

Somehow it seems worse, when someone who has so much behaves in such a stupid, greedy way.
When is enough $$$ enough?

The article in ABC says she will not address the media. Among other issues there are security concerns as they are expecting groups staging protests near the court house.
