THE Duke of Palma, Iñaki Urdangarin, is facing up to 19 years and six months behind bars.
The Anti-corruption Public Prosecutor’s Office will ask for a combined prison sentence of more than 100 years for all the defendants in the Noos case, including 19 years six months for Urdangarin – the husband of the Infanta Cristina – and 16 years six months for his former associate Diego Torres.
They stand accused of allegedly diverting public funds and misappropriating up to €5.9 million.
On the other hand, it appears the Public Prosecutor has found no proof that the Infanta Cristina, Duchess of Palma and sister of Spanish King Felipe VI, has committed any crimes. It is believed, however, that she may have benefited from the funds diverted by her husband and could be asked to repay up to €600,000.
