The Swiss Prosecutor’s Office estimates the amount of money shared by Juan Carlos I and his former partner Corinna Larsen through companies, accounts and foundations at more than 82 million euros, according to the documentation that he has sent to the National Court. It is, as advanced The vanguard, from revenues from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Mexico and Morocco.
Corinna Larsen is being investigated in Switzerland for aggravated money laundering together with the managers of the capital of the king emeritus in that country. The prosecutor Yves Bertossa opened an investigation following the publication in Spain of some recordings in which Larsen spoke of alleged crimes of the monarch for which he had deposited money in banks in Geneva.
The funds collected by the Swiss investigation went through accounts linked to the monarch through two foundations where it appears as a beneficiary or were derived by commercial structures owned by it to Larsen bank accounts.
The German commission agent, for example, directly charged 4.1 million euros for an intermediation in Kuwait “several days after the visit of Juan Carlos I to the emir” of that country, says the document from the Swiss Public Ministry. The money partly ended up in the accounts of Corinna Larsen, who explained to the prosecutor in her statement that she used it to defray the expenses of two apartments in Switzerland.
The Swiss Prosecutor’s Office also speaks of the 64.8 million euros from Saudi Arabia that Juan Carlos I collected in 2008, when he was head of state. The money ended up in a Larsen account four years later, in 2012.
Likewise, the Zagatka foundation, whose first owner is Álvaro de Orleans, the king’s cousin, paid trips for Juan Carlos I and Corinna Larsen worth 4 million euros. Bertossa, who considers the cousin of the emeritus his front man, also detected income in the Zagatka foundation from a mediation in Mexico (3.8 million eurtos) and others, worth 6.5 million, of which their origin is unknown .
