Congress of Deputies gets legal green light to investigate former King

Written by on January 12, 2021

Legal teams working for the Congress of Deputies have said that the Cortes’ lower house can open an investigation into the former Kings use of “black credit cards”.

In a report issued by lawyers for the Spanish parliament, they said that an investigative commission can be established over the emeritus kings use of bank cards in another persons name.

A formal decision is due to be made in the coming days over whether to open an inquest, with PSOE already saying they would not support any investigation – instead stating that it should be carried out by the Constitutional Court.
