MADRID (AP) — Protesters have jeered the son-in-law of Spain's King Juan Carlos as he entered a Barcelona court to press a demand against a former business partner with whom he is under investigation for corruption.
Inaki Urdangarin, who is married to the king's second daughter, Princess Cristina, is suspected of having used his position to embezzle several million euros (dollars) in public funds via a supposedly nonprofit foundation he set up with former partner Diego Torrres. Cristina is also under investigation for possible tax fraud and money laundering. Neither has been charged.
Urdangarin was seeking an extension of a ruling prohibiting Torres and media companies from publishing emails sent by him in the past.
Anti-monarchy protesters with republican flags jeered as he entered the court Tuesday amid tight security.
