All Spain knows that the king emeritus Juan Carlos he is a “proven criminal and a thief”. This was stated by the Minister of Consumption and federal coordinator of United Left (IU), Alberto Garzón, during a press conference, when asked if Juan Carlos’ presence in Spain had generated any kind of problems with his colleagues from the rest of the government. Referring to the former sovereign as a “proven criminal”, Garzon explained that “citizen Juan Carlos of Bourbon” himself admitted to the Spanish Treasury that he had committed a crime. The Minister of Consumption acknowledged that at this moment the former head of state has no lawsuits open in Spain, but he did not attribute this fact to his innocence, but to the fact that many of the investigations refer to the times when he was ” inviolable “and therefore”protected by monarchical institutions”.
Garzón then commented positively on the new project led by the vice president of the government and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Diaz, which is forming a movement capable of coalescing the various alternative political forces to the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE). “We support this space of transformation that is being woven at the moment”, underlined the federal coordinator of the IU.
