Not surprising at all - an extremely complicated case on top of other workloads. Takes a long time to sift through the law and facts, often conflicting.

Unless there's some sort of laws dictating when a court has to decide a criminal matter, there's no telling how long it can take the courts. And as AnaC says, this was a massive case. I could see...

I wish my Spanish was good enough for me to actually listen to the recording, which is on the website of el mundo if anyone cares to listen. Can one of our Spanish posters give an accurate account?...

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...

I'm not sure what Sofia was going to do to stop her adult daughter and son-in-law. She was not the monarch, I doubt she had any power or control over Cristina in any way.

As for whether I need...

Thanks, Duke! The criminal justice system in Spain is so different from that in the U.S.

So Cristina might be out of this within the month. We'll see.

I sincerely hope they are at home in Geneva, going to school and continuing their routine. They must have enough resources that some adult can stay with them.

I agree -whether she is innocent or not, she's damned.
