So the royal family knew but his wife did not? What BS!! The King tried to shut down the business, what inaki ignored. I think that at some point the King realized that inaki was exploiting the path that the King himself had paved for him and tried to stop him, too little too late. When the Full scale came visible, even for inaki, the family was sent out of view to Washington. Without the crisis, the would have been no trial. I wonder what queen Sofia thinks of this statement, that all evil came from her office, supporting the Palmas all the way so far.

It's funny how the blame is always on others and Inanki didn't know anthing... isn't it?

I do agree with you. Plus, don't even tell me that the King JC and Queen Sofia didn't take Cristina aside for a harsh talk on this subject many times. Parents do that especially when in their position. Think Inaki threw his wife under the bus on this one. There is no way I now have any small doubt [if I even did before] that Cristina wasn't up to her eyes in all this along with her husband. It is now so plain why Felipe and Letizia stepped back from them years ago. I wonder about Elena. I can see her trying to support her sister thru loving but being ashamed about crime. What a damn mess and I still feel so sorry for the innocent children

Its all such a mess,no wonder queen Sofia hasn't appeared in public in a long time,she must be heartbroken over this entire dreadful state of affairs.

Torres and Urdangarin strategy is the same, protect each other and to their wives. They know it would be almost impossible to be declared innocent, so is their last desperate attempt to save themselves.

They attacks on certain people linked to the House of the King, because they do not forgive Juan Carlos have not taken them out of this mess.

They attack Tejeiro brothers, brothers in law of Torres, because they have reached an agreement to tell the truth in exchange, one of reduce jail and the other of not being charged.

Today Iñaki even blamed his secretary of Aizoon expenses ... to save his wife.

All are guilty unless they who are saints and their poor wives who knew nothing ... they are actually giving a pathetic spectacle.

Cristina declaration will be late this afternoon or tomorrow.

wow - i can't believe that inaki is blaming the RF now. what a terrible move. yes, you have got to wonder how they expect us to believe that cristina 'knew nothing'.

good point. that was clever on felipe and letizia. i imagine that as of today they are not talking to each other much, given the harm this can do to them. i also see them as responsible people who wouldn't tolerate such hypocrisy from the palmas. concerning elena, she seems a kind soul and potentially a bridge builder between felipe and cristina, trying to save whatever is left.

that's so interesting, i guess they (inaki and torres) had their private meetings to agree stopping to boycott each other and agree on a joint strategy. it's funny to see how they went from war between each other to reaching consensus: i guess at some point inaki expected his position to save him from this mess, so didn't believe torres could stand up to him. now, however, they've come to realise that they are both buried deep... and had to reach common agreement.

it's also interesting to see that even with their royal position and the help of the best lawyers... they still won't get out of this. i wouldn't have thought so myself at the start.

i am looking forward to cristina's declaration.

Wow! Just WOW! Inaki just threw the palace under the bus, and IMO his father-in-law mostly. That was not the best move, he has just alienated himself from his wife's family. I'm with you guys about Felipe and Letizia stepping away from them many years ago. Smart move on their part. And I have always believed that Christina knew (at least in part) what was going on. Now Inaki has sealed her fate as well by saying the palace knew, in my mind, if the palace knew then she had to have known.

i am most unfamiliar with judicial processes - how come cristina can 'choose' that only her lawyer asks her questions? what are the advantages of having any lawyers ask questions?

Infanta Cristina's statement is no surprise, it was her strategy from day 1. I dont think she will do time.
