In the Government they assume that Don Juan Carlos "wants to return", but they share with Zarzuela that the resolution of his judicial horizon is key to activate any reform

Quote:
From the Treasury they assure that "they are working" and do not presuppose any results in the investigations, since they warn that in order to avoid the tax crime, the regularizations of Don Juan Carlos must be "complete and truthful." All the parties involved - Zarzuela, the Government and the legal team that defends the interests of Don Juan Carlos - are interested in not producing a false closure, that is, that after a statement is produced, new interested leaks provoke new investigations that perpetuate this matter. That is why "there is no stone left unturned," as sources familiar with the progress of these investigations confessed to this newspaper, who, of course, are counting on all the cooperation of the King's father's lawyers.

However, for them to be activated, we will have to wait, first, for the Office of the Supreme Prosecutor to issue its verdict on the irregularities of Don Juan Carlos with the Treasury. In Moncloa they assume that Don Juan Carlos "wants to return to Spain", but they understand that "the circumstances that led to his departure last year have not only not disappeared, but have worsened" and we must wait for this to be resolved. stage. In any case, the Executive's position is one of closed defense of the institution, even refusing to withdraw the title of honorary king, which the monarch received after abdicating, despite pressure from the opposition parties in this regard and their own government partners.

New claims that the source of Juan Carlos’s wealth isn’t oil - it’s weapons trafficking

Corinna has requested a restraining order from the UK courts against JC and is pushing for action against unwarranted surveillance.

Weird story and sky news has no idea who they are talking about with their continued reference to 'Carlos' instead of 'Juan Carlos'.

King Juan Carlos I: no judicial investigation after a year outside of Spain

Although the Prosecutor's Office has opened new lines of investigation, it has not taken the step of filing a complaint against the King Emeritus, who is also still under the scrutiny of a Swiss prosecutor.

Whatever they're looking at is probably labyrinthine and immense. Being under investigation is one more reason not to come back.

He has made the couple of "regularization" payments, though. Other than that, I'm not sure he's done too much to help himself this year.

According to this NOS-article Juan Carlos is living in a villa on the (private) tiny island Zaya Nurai (a 'hidden gem' according to Go Urban).

I believe the journalist who wrote the article in Dutch is their correspondent in Spain, so I assume his sources are indeed the Spanish media. And given that he is now a year into his exile this week articles about it are peaking and all will go back to 'normal' next week (in terms of media attention).

It sounds like other than loneliness King Emeritus Juan Carlos is living in luxury tucked away on an exclusive island villa off the coast of Abu Dhabi. I thought as a guest of the Emirates, they would foot the bill but one of these articles indicates the Spanish treasury is paying. It also appears like the wheels of justice are turning very slowly in sorting out Juan Carlos' financial irregularities.

They must let King Juan Carlos return to Spain. Being in Abu Dhabi, so far away from Spain and his family must be a huge punishment for him.
He should return to Spain, even if not to Zarzuela, but to a place where he could have some privacy and be safe. His being in the Emirates is not going to solve anything either.

Juan Carlos fall from grace is a TV movie come to life.
