Recall that earlier this year the Supreme court of Spain launched an investigation against the former monarch, who was at the center of anti-corruption investigations — according to investigators, in 2008, he allegedly received about $76 or $100 million euros from the now late king Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Juan Carlos abdicated in 2014.
