Juan Carlos I hires Sánchez-Junco as defense attorney
King emeritus Juan Carlos I, has hired a former anti-corruption Public Prosecutor for his defense, Javier Sánchez-Junco, to exercise his right to defense after last news pointing out that the king emeritus may be behind investments or structures “that may not be in full and strict compliance with the law”

Sánchez-Junco is a former anti-corruption Public Prosecutor, now on leave of absence, well known in the 1990s for leading the case against Mario Conde in the Banesto case.
According to the press release, this lawyer will be from now on “the one who proceeds to give public account of the information that may affect him [the King emeritus] and that is considered appropriate,” after the statement where Felipe VI announced that he renounces his inheritance and cuts his father’s income over the “offshore fund”.
