ROYAL SCANDAL

Urdangarin used business he shared with Princess Cristina as “ghost” firm

King’s son-in-law billed six companies for his services via Aizoon

Comunidad de Madrid 23 ENE 2013 - 15:43 CET

King Juan Carlos's son-in-law Iñaki Urdangarin, who is the target of a public fraud inquiry, used a partnership he held with his wife, Princess Cristina, to conceal some one million euros in earnings he received after he was told by the monarch to cut all his business ties, tax investigators say.

In an AEAT agency report made public on Tuesday, Urdangarin is shown to have used the Aizoon real estate firm, which he jointly owned with the princess, to bill six companies, including two French firms, for money that may have not been reported for tax purposes.

Aizoon was used "as a ghost company to hide the true collector of the money and reduce a personal income tax rate by deducting expenses not related to the company's activities," the report stated.

The king told Urdangarin in 2007 to cut all his ties with his non-profit Nóos Institute after an investigation was initiated into the diversion of public funds at the non-profit entity.

Princess Cristina has not been a target in the case.
