Prosecutor Moves To Dismiss Paternity Suits Against King Juan Carlos

Spanish Supreme Court prosecutors are asking judges to reject two paternity suits against King Juan Carlos, according to newspaper El País.

Allegations by a Spanish citizen and a Belgian citizen go back years. Both say they are the product of Don Juan Carlos’ extramarital affairs.

However, their cases never went far. Before his abdication, King Juan Carlos was “inviolable” under the Spanish Constitution.

King Juan Carlos is no longer inviolable under law, but the ruling conservative party made him, Queen Sofia and Queen Letizia only answerable to the Supreme Court.
