Re: Juan Carlos, Corinna, and Swiss bank accounts (again)
Itís sad, really. Growing up, I really admired JC (together with Pope John Paul II).
With his high position in the country, one would think that he would have much better legal and financial advisors, especially in light of the recent Urdangarrin scandal. Although at least this one does not involve public funds. Still, I expected more from the man who managed the Transition.
He reminds me more and more like Prince Bernhard
As you said, again the Corinna affair and her recordings involving KIng Juan Carlos in dirty business. In fact this scandal was the trigger for removing him from public life and representation of the Crown last year and not not exactly due to bad health.
Unfortunately this time there are uglier details (enormpus amounts of money transferred by the King to his lover and her son under dubious arrangements, harassment suffered by Corinna after the April 2012 incident by the Spanish Intelligence Service) that people are finding very unpleasant and are underminng his already scarce popularity. A pity. But that's the way it is.
I guess more suprises are still to come as Corina seems to be a dangerous time bomb with much information in her files.
Anyway nowadays people are so disappointed with the old King that the scandal is "just one more" of his particular going-ons. R.
In the past few days, news articles regarding Corinna, her lawsuit against King Juan Carlos and Spanish security services, and the King emeritusí alleged Swiss slush fund have started popping up in the news media again. Not exactly front page news (due to the Coronavirus outbreak), but they do attract Catalan separatist and Spanish republican comments on social media.
To the Spaniards on this board: will this be another headache for King Felipe and the Royal House, or is it just much ado about nothing?
