King of Spain’s daughter charged in fraud investigation

The Infanta Cristina, King Juan Carlos‘s younger daughter, has been charged today in a corruption probe into alleged misuse of public funds by her husband Inaki Urdangarin, a court official said.

‘The judge has issued a court ruling in which he calls Cristina de Borbon y Grecia to testify on April 27,’ the official told Reuters, confirming earlier reports from El Pais newspaper and Cadena Ser radio.

It was not clear on what charges the princess was called to testify by investigating judge Jose Castro but the unprecedented step may increase pressure on the monarch to abdicate.

The Royal Palace has not released any comment.
