Trial of Spain's Princess, Husband Enters Final Day

Wednesday, 22 June 2016 06:24 AM

MADRID (AP) — Spain's Princess Cristina, her husband Inaki Urdangarin and 15 other defendants are in court for what is likely to be the final day of a nearly six-month trial on charges of tax fraud and corruption.

Defense lawyers were wrapping up final arguments Wednesday. After that the accused may make final comments before the court adjourns to deliberate on verdicts, which could take months.

The trial centers on accusations that Urdangarin used his former title, Duke of Palma, to embezzle about 6 million euros ($6.6 million) in public funds for the nonprofit Noos Institute he ran with a partner that put on sport conferences.

An anti-corruption group recommends Cristina be jailed for eight years while the state prosecutor suggested an administrative fine for the tax-fraud charges against her.
