PRINCESS CRISTINA: To appear in court this Saturday
SPAIN’S Princess Cristina is due to appear in court in Palma on Saturday for her supposed financial crimes in the Noos case.
The alleged infractions are related to the money laundering and mismanagement of funds connected to her husband, Iñanki Urdangarin, Duke of Palma de Mallorca.
Urdangarin was first implicated in November 2011 for diverting up to €5.8 million of public funds for personal benefit.
Now Princess Cristina has been summoned to appear in the Palma Provincial Court to confirm her direct corroboration in her husband’s financial activities.
She will do so under strict security enforcement, and will presumably arrive to the court by car.
Palma’s senior judge Francisco Martinez Espinosa has authorised her arrival by car strictly for reasons of security.
The judge assured that he had not received any request or instruction from the royal family but had only received the police report with its advice on the security measures needed.

The last paragraph is interesting in that it points the way to another lie – by omission. The judge assured he had not received any requests by the royal family but if he had would he actually tell us? I seriously doubt it. In the unlikely event he is telling the truth then, in all probability, the family spoke with the police who then made the recommendation. They still treat the Spanish public as fools. Would Spain backs its royal family if it came out from behind its army of lawyers and told the truth? I believe it would. In that one move a whole raft of corruption could be swept away. The royal family have a golden opportunity to lead Spain into a more honest and democratic society. However, the lies and corruption are so deep seated and despite the warnings from the European Commission on corruption these evil twins of a long gone era are clearly going to dig in deep and die fighting! Such a pity.
