Princess Cristina to testify in corruption case

THE youngest daughter of Spain’s King Juan Carlos won’t appeal preliminary charges against her for alleged financial crimes.

She will give unprecedented testimony before a judge on February 8, a court and her lawyers said.

Princess Cristina will be the first direct member of Spain’s royal family to testify in court while facing preliminary charges for a crime, Spain’s royal household confirmed.

Her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, the King’s son-in-law, already faces preliminary charges in the same case. He testified last February about his business dealings and the alleged diversion of public funds that have been at the center of a judge’s investigation.

The princess and her husband, through their legal teams, deny any wrongdoing.
