The King Emeritus of Spain gets rid of criminal proceedings. The Attorney General’s Office has archived the three investigative proceedings that were open to King Juan Carlos I.
The Chief Anti-Corruption Prosecutor was investigating him for the alleged collection of 65 million euros in commissions for the high-speed train works Medina-Mecca in Saudi Arabia, for alleged undeclared donations and the alleged concealment of funds in tax havens.
However, he has not found sufficient evidence to file a complaint against him.
This supposes a definitive shelving of the three open investigations against Juan Carlos I 571 days after he left Spain.
