Lawyers of Spain's Infanta Cristina, Jesus Maria Silva (C), Pau Molins (R) and Jaume Riutord, chat during a lunch break at Palma de Mallorca courthouse where Infanta Cristina is being questioned by a judge in a corruption case, February 8, 2014. Spain's Infanta Cristina was questioned by a judge on Saturday in a corruption case that has deepened public anger over graft among the ruling class and discontent with the royal family. It was the first time that a Spanish royal has been summoned in a criminal proceeding since the monarchy was restored in 1975 following the death of dictator Francisco Franco. With Spain emerging slowly from a deep economic and financial crisis, judges are looking into hundreds of corruption cases left over from a property boom that ended abruptly in 2008. Cristina, the younger daughter of King Juan Carlos and seventh in line to the throne, is answering preliminary charges of tax fraud and money laundering linked to her use of income from a shell company she co-owned with her husband Inaki Urdangarin.
