“There are no indications which allow a punitive condemnation to be directed against His Excellency Mr. Juan Carlos of Bourbon and Bourbon, With this statement, the judicial examination of Emeritus Monarch ended on March 2. Was the head of state during 40 years.
It all started when a former close friend of Don Juan Carlos, Corinna Larson, tell the commissioner Jose Manuel VillarejoI heard the former president of Telefnica, John Villalonga, King’s secret business. That indiscreet confession led the anti-corruption prosecutor to launch investigation proceedings in December 2018 to commission the charged for pharaonic work in Mecca of AVE for the offense of corruption in business.

For example, that the former minister unsuccessfully offered prosecutors on the investigative team that they consider taking a statement from the Emeritus. The attorney general received a negative response, as his subordinates told him that the public ministry lacked regulatory coverage to convene Don Juan Carlos in the framework of pre-trial proceedings.
Furthermore, as the investigation progressed, those responsible for the investigation began to see more and more clearly that it was not possible to present a complaint against the emperor before the second house of the Supreme Court because a large proportion of the criminal was bourbon. The acts attributed to Juan Carlos were determined and many others were committed when the king was protected by a veil of violence. Not in vain, the jurisprudence of the High Court requires that there is strong evidence of criminality against the appraisers before opening a criminal case against them.
At the time, the attorney general proposed that instead of a complaint, a complaint be filed for alleged criminal acts and, again, she ran into the disapproval of Supreme Court prosecutors who believed they would make a fool of themselves.
