THE husband of the Infanta Cristina has admitted in court his company had fake workers on its payroll.
A former accountant at Noos, Marco Tejeiro, testified in court earlier this month that Inaki Urdangarin had family members’ names on the payroll of his company Aizoon.
Urdangarin also denied charging commissions when he operated his non-profit company Noos Institute.
“I was in charge of what I was in charge of,” he testified.
“I had some advisors that helped with matters and some employees I didn’t know we had.
“I have never made commissions, absolutely not,” he said.
Inaki Urdangarin and his wife co-owned the Aizoon real estate company.
Urdangarin is accused of channelling €6.2 million earned in business contracts to private companies.
He faces a maximum of 19 years in prison if he is convicted.
