Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has described corruption allegations surrounding former King Juan Carlos as disturbing


Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has described corruption allegations surrounding former King Juan Carlos as disturbing after the media published details relating to an investigation into possible payments linked to a rail contract.

In June, Spain’s Supreme Court opened an investigation into Juan Carlos’ involvement with a high-speed rail contract in Saudi Arabia after a Swiss newspaper reported he had received 88 million Euros from the late Saudi King.

Through his lawyer, Juan Carlos, 82, has repeatedly declined to comment on the allegations.
