Spanish princess' court hearing delayed by judge
MADRID (AP) — A judge investigating suspected fraud who had subpoenaed the Spanish king's daughter to give testimony has postponed the hearing after prosecutors appealed the subpoena.
Princess Cristina had been ordered to testify April 27 at a court on the island of Palma de Mallorca by Judge Jose Castro.
But on Friday the judge delayed the hearing after prosecutors argued there is insufficient evidence of her involvement in an alleged plot to embezzle public money. He did not set a new hearing date.
The investigation centers on whether the 47-year-old princess' husband, Inaki Urdangarin and his former business partner took advantage of their royal connections to funnel about 5 million euros ($6.4 million) in public funds via the nonprofit Noos Institute they ran into private businesses they also controlled.
