I think you have summarized the situation well.... shall we see the end of this matter one day ?????

I think they care about public opinion, no matter how much money they have.

My prediction: the charges will be dropped against Cristina and Inaki will be convicted and serve some sort of time. He will also face a huge amount in restitution.

Corruption trial for Spain′s Princess Cristina draws to a close | News | DW.COM | 22.06.2016
Latin American Herald Tribune - Lawyer for Spanish Princess Urges Acquittal in Corruption Case

now we are waiting for the verdict. i don't think cristina will be sentenced, the state or public prosecution never pressed for any charges, she is only where she is because of a shady organisation, manos limpios, now accused of extortion and worse.

pretty sure inaki will do prison time.

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.

Infanta Cristina is relieved that the 1st part of the trial is over.
