TODAY Princess Cristina officially appealed all tax fraud and money-laundering charges against her.
She maintains that she had no knowledge that her husband had been laundering money, a position she has held since February.
Her husband Inaki Urdangarin, the Duke of Palma de Mallorca, has been accused of stealing tax money from regional governments through not-for-profit company Noos, which overcharged for organising sporting events. The money then went to Aizoon, the company she and her husband co-own.
While Palma de Mallorca’s investigating judge Jose Castro says that the princess could not have been ignorant to her husband and company’s activities, her lawyer Miquel Roca emphasized his “absolute conviction” in Cristina’s innocence.
If found guilty, the princess could face up to an 11-year prison sentence.
