Husband of Spain’s Princess Cristina gets five years for fraud, tax evasion

/ 06:44 PM June 12, 2018

Madrid — Spain’s Supreme Court has upheld a lower court’s verdict sentencing the husband of Princess Cristina to almost six years behind bars, though it reduced his sentence by five months.

The court ruled on an appeal Tuesday that Inaki Urdangarin, King Felipe VI’s brother-in-law, is guilty of fraud and tax evasion, among other crimes, but it acquitted him of a crime of forging documents.

The lower court, in Palma de Mallorca, convicted Urdangarin in a celebrated 2016 trial of misuse of public funds, abuse of power, fraud, tax evasion and influence peddling.

The Supreme Court also upheld the verdict that Princess Cristina benefitted from her husband’s crimes. She was ordered to pay a fine.
