The destiny of the emeritus king to flee from his scandals: an authoritarian and opaque country that has been forgiven everything for economic interests
"The numerous reports that appear these days about certain activities of King Juan Carlos I have excited a proliferation of convictions without due respect for the presumption of innocence. If his actions could be worthy of disapproval, the courts of justice will decide. it will be able to erase the work of King Juan Carlos for the benefit of democracy and the nation, under pain of social ingratitude that nothing good would presage for Spanish society as a whole, "they argue.
