Re: Juan Carlos in Abu Dhabi -- Spanish prosecutors shelve plans to bring charges against him
This just popped up in my Twitter feed: https://english.elpais.com/spain/2021-10-06/spanish-prosecutors-prepare-to-shelve-investigations-into-emeritus-king-juan-carlos-i.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter&ssm=TW_CM_EN#Echobox=1633517744
"The Supreme Court public prosecutor and the anti-corruption prosecutor are preparing a “broad document” setting out the reasons behind their upcoming decision to shelve all three ongoing investigations into Spain’s former king, Juan Carlos I. That’s according to sources with knowledge of the investigation, who have spoken to EL PAÍS.
The decree that will officially bring an end to the legal proceedings, and will mean no lawsuits will be filed against the monarch, will be made public in the coming weeks, as was first reported by online Spanish daily El Confidencial."
Very sad, but who can blame the reigning couple from steering clear? He became corrupt and self-serving, and appears to remain too proud to atone and publicly beg for Spain’s and his family’s forgiveness.
