These are all the crimes that the prosecution attributes to King Juan Carlos despite exonerating him

The prosecution began to investigate a possible crime of corruption in businessderived from the way in which the award took place, in October 2011, of the works for the second phase of the construction of the AVE to Mecca (Saudi Arabia) to the Al-Shoula consortium, made up of 12 Spanish companies and two Saudis, and if there was a possible relationship with the entry of 64,884,405 euros on August 8, 2008 by the then King of Saudi Arabia in the account of the LUCUM Foundation of which Juan Carlos I was the owner.

There was a fourth account earmarked for “investments in British securities” by Juan Carlos.

Finally, in 2012, the emeritus transferred all the assets of LUCUM to Corinna’s account as an “irrevocable donation & rdquor ;. All these movements were made, always according to the prosecution without declaring to the Treasury “the income and returns obtained & rdquor; from 2008 to 2012. Neither in 2012 nor in subsequent years did the emeritus present an informative declaration of assets and rights abroad. The prosecution establishes two hypotheses about the origin of the money. Or a donation or other concept of an unknown nature. In both cases, Juan Carlos defrauded more than, by far, the amount of 120,000 euros that article 305 of the Criminal Code establishes as the threshold of the crime”. But his responsibility is extinguished by the prescription of the crime until 2012 and, thereafter, by his inviolability as Head of State.

As for the gift firearms that Álvaro de Orleans-Borbón gave himalthough the donation is subject to inheritance and gift tax, the tax amount amounts to 30,411.14 euros, “notably lower” than the 120,000 euros that set the threshold for the crime.
