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.
