A PATERNITY claim against the former King of Spain has been thrown out by the supreme court.
A Belgian woman, Ingrid Sartiau, had claimed Juan Carlos fathered her while he was the prince in the 1960s.
However, the court stated the claim is unfounded and denied her request for a DNA test.
The case was originally brought in 2012 but was dismissed due to the King’s royal impunity.
But when Juan Carlos, father of current King Felipe, abdicated in 2014, he gave up that protection.
The court rejected another complainant’s claim that he was Juan Carlos’ son in January, when it agreed to inspect Ms Sartiau’s case.
