The Defence team for Inaki Urdangarin registered this morning before the court of Instruction No. 3 of Palma.

When the fraud and corruption case against Iñaki Urdangarin, the disgraced son-in-law of the former King Juan Carlos of Spain eventually comes to trial, the defence could call on a host of high profile witnesses.
A list of 696 proposed witnesses have been put forward by the defence team of Diego Torres, the former business partner and co-defendent of the Duke of Palma, the husband of Princess Cristina.
On the list is King Felipe VI, King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, the King’s sister the Infanta Elena and her ex-husband Jaime de Marichalar.
King Felipe’s aunt and elder sister of Juan Carlos, the Infanta Pilar, Duchess of Badajos is also on the list of proposed witnesses as is the King Felipe’s maternal aunt, Princess Irene of Greece and Denmark.

So by calling them as witnesses, Torres is indicating that the whole family knew what was going on? I don't think any of them will be called to testify but by proposing them Torres defence could bring further embarrassment for the SRF.

Yes, looks like Torres has made a smart move in putting Spanish Royal Family on list of PROPOSED witnesses. Know they will not be called on the stand, but, just the fact that they are on list makes one believe that there is a piece of evidence showing they knew what was going on for years. Tickles me that Letizia was not included. One has to wonder.

Torres has requested nearly 700 witnesses, a way of complicating the court case... all names that appear in the emails of Iñaki are appointed, but really many of them can not contribute to the case, and the court will not accept it.

When he created Noos, he sent an email to all members of the family and friends presenting his project, it was March 2003 and all who received the mail are appointed. Letizia does not appear because then she was not a member of the family.

What's the likely-hood of the Borbóns being called as witnesses en masse ,the media would have a field day!

I do not think a judge would agree to spend the money of citizens lengthening a trial and calling hundreds of people who are not going to contribute anything to the court case ... it is totally absurd. This is part of the media show of Diego Torres.

Hypothetically if the judge decides that one can contribute something to the case... King Felipe as head of state would not testify, and King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia could do it in writing without going to court.

i do hope they involve at least some of the SRF witnesses to testify, although don't believe they will. i think that some of the SRF members, felipe in particular, would be honest in what they tell the court at least and hopefully this will help speed up this never ending case.

Cristina's defense team is stressing that Urdangarin’s wife knew nothing of the way the company was being run, had no training in accounting, and simply signed whatever documents her husband placed in front of her “without asking for explanations.”

The atmosphere will be great in the couple in the next days. "Sorry darling, but I had to put all the blame on you, I sincerely hope you will be comprehensive."

Will the couple separate? Keeping common life will be difficult.

Considering they have had a long time to prepare the defence, I doubt that this course of action will be a surprise to Inaki. And perhaps it is the truth, she wouldn't be the first nor the last spouse that trusts the other marital partner blindly.

Asking 700 people to testify seems rather excessive and a waste of time and money.

I am sure that if they actually appear in court -which I very much doubt- most of the family will go along with the story that was told by King Constantine to Christiane Amanpour: she is a fantastic lady who would never do anything like that.

Cristina has been demanded to declare a list of assets to be blocked to cover her €2.7 million bail fee while she awaits trial. The Palma de Mallorca Judge Jose Castro has given her a deadline of Friday to present the list.
