Infanta Cristina Charged With Tax Evasion, Money Laundering
Infanta Cristina of Spain, Duchess of Palma has been charged with tax evasion and money laundering. She has been summoned to court on March 8th.
Infanta Cristina is the youngest daughter of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain. Her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin, is at the centre of a corruption scandal over allegations regarding the misappropriation of several million euros of public funds when he was head of the non-profit Noos Institute. Iñaki Urdangarin has so far appeared twice before the Balearic Court.
Last summer, the Duchess of Palma had her first imputation suspended by a Spanish court due to lack of evidence. Infanta Cristina with her husband and children have been living in Geneva, Switzerland for the past few months.
The news is both very damaging and worrying for the future Spanish Monarchy which after many decades of popularity has been plagued by scandals and bad publicity.Filed under Spain
