Spain King's Son-In-Law Subpoenaed in Graft Probe
A judge subpoenas the husband of the daughter of Spain's King Juan Carlos to testify as a suspect in a corruption case, deepening a public relations nightmare for the royal family.
(AP) Madrid — The case surrounding Inaki Urdangarin, husband of the king's daughter Cristina, has been front-page news for weeks. But it went a big step further Thursday when Judge Jose Castro on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca named Urdangarin as a formal suspect in a criminal probe.
But Spanish media say Urdangarin, 43, is suspected of siphoning money from public contracts awarded from 2004 to 2006 to a nonprofit foundation he then headed. He has not been charged with a crime.
