PALACE SCANDAL

Royal Household wipes Urdangarin from palace website

Move comes after former partner of king’s son-in-law accuses Princess Cristina´s secretary of involvement in fraud case

The Spanish Royal Household has deleted all references to Iñaki Urdangarin, the king’s embattled son-in-law, from its official website. The section on www.casareal.es featuring the Duke of Palma, the husband of Princess Cristina, disappeared between Saturday night and Sunday morning. The decision came two days after a direct attack on the monarchy by Urdangarin’s former business associate Diego Torres, who also faces charges of misappropriation of public funds while in charge of Nóos Institute, allegedly a non-profit body.

Torres revealed emails that he says prove that Carlos García Revenga, the private secretary to both princesses, knew about Nóos’ real activities while acting as the institute’s treasurer.

Prosecutors believe Urdangarin siphoned some 2.3 million euros from the Balearics government and 3.7 million from the Valencia administration to organize sports and tourism conferences. The money, prosecutors say, was actually funneled to Urdangarin’s private businesses, including a real estate firm he jointly operated with his wife.
