In-law the King of Spain Iñaki Urgandarin was in the midst of a corruption scandal that has now become the subject of litigation.
According to Gazeta.ru, referring to Euronews, the duke of Palma de Majorcan - such was the title of a famous athlete after his marriage to the daughter of Juan Carlos Christine - said he regretted the troubles brought the royal family, but does not consider itself guilty.
Urgandarin, who now works in the Spanish telephone company in Washington, is accused of financial irregularities. They are associated with the transfer of large sums of money offshore - a few million euros. Moreover, as the result, these funds were public.
This story may overshadow, according to Spanish press, "the good name of the royal family," which lately is making great efforts to support its popularity among the people in this time of financial crisis.
