Princess kept on list of suspects

A Spanish judge has moved closer to charging Princess Cristina, sister of newly proclaimed King Felipe, in a tax fraud and money-laundering investigation centring on her husband.

Wrapping up a four-year pre-trial investigation, Palma de Mallorca investigative magistrate Jose Castro today kept Cristina on the list of suspects he thinks should stand trial - in her case for money- laundering and tax fraud co-operation.

The judge said her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, should be tried for embezzlement and fraud.

Neither has been formally charged.

Prosecutors and defendants will study the ruling and present their accusations or arguments. The judge will then decide on what charges to bring, a step not likely to occur before September.
