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.
