Abdication doubts

January 13, 2014

According to AFP:

Once almost taboo, Spaniards are now talking seriously about a possible abdication by 76-year-old King Juan Carlos as he battles a string of health woes and his youngest daughter fights a corruption scandal.

A judge on Tuesday declared the king’s youngest daughter, 48-year-old Cristina, a suspect in alleged tax and money-laundering crimes.

He summoned her to testify on March 8 at his court…a first for a direct relative of a Spanish king.

Cristina has been linked to the business affairs of her husband, former Olympic handball player Inaki Urdangarin, who has been under investigation for alleged embezzlement of public funds.
