THE Palma Court has confirmed former Duchess of Palma Cristina de Borbon will have to stand trial accused of cooperating in two fiscal crimes regarding the Noos corruption case.Her defence presented a document this week asking the court in charge of the case to reconsider whether the accusation against the Infanta Cristina by a popular prosecution was legitimate or not, and asking to settle the issue out of court.They allege that the Infanta should be judged under the Botin Doctrine, which allows the accused to avoid standing trial when they have not been accused by the prosecutor’s office or anyone damaged by the alleged crime.However, their plea has been rejected and the Infanta Cristina will have to go face-to-face with the judge when the trial takes place.
