NÓOS SCANDAL

Prosecutor targets king’s daughter in fresh Nóos case angle

Probe extends to Princess Cristina's tax returns

The anti-corruption prosecutor, Pedro Horrach, has asked the judge investigating the Nóos case to open a new line of inquiry probing Princess Cristina's tax returns for possible evidence of financial crimes or money-laundering.

Horrach had originally fought to keep the king's youngest daughter off the stand in the investigation into Iñaki Urdangarin's business affairs, but has now asked that a report issued by tax inspectors in January over her husband's alleged wrongdoing be examined in relation to the princess. Cristina part-owned the Nóos Institute, through which Urdangarin is accused of siphoning off millions in public funds.

Balearic court magistrates had quashed Judge José Castro's decision to indict Cristina for influence-peddling, but said in their ruling that financial crimes by the princess through the couple's jointly owned Aizóon firm "cannot be ruled out."
