IÑAKI URDANGARIN’S nephew has been called to testify in the case against him.

The judge in charge of the Noos corruption case involving the King of Spain’s son-in-law has called Jan Gui Urdangarin and three other witnesses following a request from the Anti-corruption Prosecutor.

The aim is to determine why he contacted people who the Noos group registered with the Social Security as staff despite them not carrying out any role within the company.

The Noos Institute was run by the Infanta Cristina’s husband Iñaki Urdangarin, and his partner Diego Torres, and was allegedly used to divert €5.8 in public funds from the Balearic and Valencian regions between 2004 and 2007.  The alleged crime was discovered during the investigation into the Palma Arena case.

One witness admitted she was registered as an employee for Noos and for Aizoon, the company used by the Duke and Duchess of Palma to manage their assets, despite the fact she did nothing within either company.  She claimed to have been contacted by Jan Gui Urdangarin and she allegedly accepted the offer because she needed to pay into the Social Security two more years to get her pension.

The judge is yet to decide whether to request a civil liability guarantee from Urdangarin and Torres.
