Urdangarin is under investigation for allegedly using a non-profit company to funnel public funds for private gain.

Former associate Diego Torres has handed over documents in an attempt to tie other members of the Royal Family in the scandal.

The Royal Household — which expressed surprise at the news — has denied wrongdoing and King Juan Carlos years ago told Urdangarin to give up questionable business dealings.

Today Queen Sofia handed out awards to encourage greater access for people with disabilities.
