MADRID (AP) — A Spanish court has withdrawn a subpoena for King Juan Carlos' daughter as a suspect in a corruption case following an appeal by prosecutors.
The Palma de Mallorca court announced Tuesday that it had accepted the appeal against 47-year-old Princess Cristina being called in for questioning in a case concerning the alleged embezzlement of public funds by her husband Inaki Urdangarin.
The prosecution argued there was insufficient evidence of her involvement.
The investigation centers on whether Urdangarin and his former business partner took advantage of their royal connections to funnel about 5 million euros ($6.5 million) in public funds that their nonprofit agency received into private businesses they also controlled.
The court summons had been a first for a member of the king's immediate family.
