NÓOS INQUIRY

Princesses’ secretary will remain in Nóos inquiry, rules review court panel

Nóos investigating judge is looking into cash movements in an account held by royal son-in-law

A three-judge panel in Palma de Mallorca on Friday denied a petition filed by the official royal secretary to be excluded from the ongoing investigation into the diversion of public money that allegedly took place at the non-profit Nóos Institute.

Carlos García Revenga, who serves as secretary to Princesses Cristina and Elena, was targeted in the investigation in January by Judge José Castro after co-defendant Diego Torres released a batch of emails that suggest he was privy to the alleged diversion of public funds that was taking place at the institute. The non-profit entity was run by Iñaki Urdangarin, Princess Cristina’s husband, who is the main target of the inquiry, and his business partner Torres.

Castro is also investigating a supposed 150,000-euro deposit and withdrawal made on the same day, December 27, 2006, at a CaixaBank account on which Urdangarin and his wife were co-signers.

The princess has not been included in the inquiry.
