Re: King Juan Carlos to be investigated over Saudi money
Here is a new article on the investigation, which suggests that King Felipe may be dragged into the scandal and the very future of the monarchy threatened. https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-europe-53415781?__twitter_impression=true
I do not know what you mean by indepenent inquiry. In Spain, the stateís prosecutors depend on the General Attorney, who is appointed by the Government.
At this point he is only being investigated. If the appointed prosecutors find any suspicion of crimes, the Supreme Court will decide if he is prosecuted.
I saw this on the Spanish news sites, as well:
Spain ex-king Juan Carlos probed over Saudi rail deal https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52977739
To the Spaniards on this board: is this another political maneuvering by the socialist/communist coalition government? Or is this really an independent inquiry?
What this and the Spanish articles didnít mention was what possible consequences would JC get if it is proved that there was actual wrongdoing after his abdication.
