I agree that Cristina will walk. Feel that Inaki will get a slap on wrist with small jail time. Maybe fines imposed but that should be no problem as family will come through on that item. Just glad for their children sake and the country of Spain that this is finally over.

The case against Infanta Cristina and her husband is meretricious. I am not sure whether or not public flogging of a high profile person will yield any tangible results in the fight against corruption. At the same time, Europeans are fond of wasting their breath.

On a different note ... public outrage was/is entertaining.

If there are convictions we can expect years of appeals. Sorry..

Was thinking that. I don't know how their courts work but I'm sure it will go on and on.

The public outrage was more media-celebbie-24 hours online-social media fuelled than true outrage. The average man or woman in the street shrug their shoulders and go on living their life. And now the only party pressing for prosecution ("Clean Hands") has remarkably dirty hands, the case has pouf! shrinked down like a soufflé.

Pffwwtt... the scandal-ridden and elbow-deep in corruption Partido Popular of PM Rajoy again became by far the biggest fraction, even winning more seats. Podemos, the so-called broom to clean up Spain's mess failed to make gains. For so far the "public outrage". What counts for the PP, which really hangs together from nepotism, counts for the Infanta. The average Spaniard enjoying their bocadilla probably only shrugs his shoulders and goes on with life.

October 19 is about 120 days after trial ends. This could be a pro forma deadline for courts - in the U.S. the federal civil courts have the same four month deadline, which in practice judges don't have to follow.

this article posted earlier mentions that cristina's eldest son, juan valentin, has needed psychological therapy due to this situation. they also mention that surprisingly cristina spend the holidays alone with pablo in an unknown location (the author speculates she could have travelled to asia), whilst inaki spent his holidays with the 3 other kids in the vasque country.

This court case has been ongoing for a considerable amount of time and it had to be quite hard psychologically for the entire family to process. I can understand that it may have been quite necessary for one child to have a more one on one time with his mother while dad and the other kids vacation elsewhere. It, to me, may just be the family's way of dealing with the effects this whole thing has had on the children.

I will be glad when it is finally all over, the results and any punishment laid down and the family can go forward from there.

I saw photos of Juan Valentin sitting in a car crying. He is known to be very sensitive and this scandal has evidently scarred him deeply.
