The Office of the Supreme Court has already received information on Juan Carlos I who claimed to Switzerland, the latest documentation expected to analyze the prosecution before decreeing file open investigations against the king emeritus. Sources Prosecutors say the letters rogatory sent by the Swiss country reached the Spanish prosecutor this week and was the prosecutor of the Supreme lieutenant, Juan Ignacio Campos, who died Wednesday, who received it and informed the general prosecutor. The information claimed by the Public Prosecutor’s Office refers to accounting notes from 2015 and 2016, when Juan Carlos I no longer held the head of State.

The Supreme Prosecutor’s Office does not believe it is foreseeable that the information sent by Switzerland will reveal any new information, but it considers it necessary to examine it before decreeing the file of the three proceedings opened against the king emeritus. The rogatory documentation made reference to information about the Zagatka foundation, owned by Álvaro de Orleans, a distant cousin of the king emeritus, to whom he paid for numerous flights with funds from this foundation. This information was claimed in the framework of the latest investigation initiated, that relating to money hidden in a trust [”fundación”] financier domiciled in the tax haven of Jersey allegedly linked to Juan Carlos I, whose maximum period of investigation expired this Friday, which led the prosecutor Campos to request a new six-month extension a few days ago. Regarding the other two formalities, lines (the one that investigates the alleged collection of illegal commissions for the intermediation in the contract of the AVE works to Mecca and the one referring to the use by Juan Carlos I of funds from the Mexican businessman Allen Sanginés- Krause), the public prosecutor has already decided to archive them, but has chosen to wait for the information from Switzerland and close them all at once.

Tax sources indicate that the documentation received must now be analyzed by the National Fraud Investigation Office (ONIF), dependent on the Tax Agency, to examine if they contain signs of irregularities and if it corresponds to what is declared in the regularization proposals prosecutor presented by Juan Carlos I. This examination, according to the sources consulted, will force the filing of the investigations to be postponed for several weeks, which rules out the possibility that the proceedings against the emeritus king may be closed before the end of the year. The public prosecutor plans, therefore, to extend another of the proceedings whose period of investigation was fulfilled in the next few days.

After the death of prosecutor Campos, the head of Anticorruption, Alejandro Luzón, will be in charge of the final phase of the investigation. Luzón and Campos have worked side by side during the last year in these proceedings and both had already begun to write the reports in which they would explain the reasons for the filing. A team of prosecutors from the Supreme Court and Anti-Corruption works alongside them, so prosecutor sources assure that the death of the lieutenant prosecutor will not affect the investigation.
