LAP could you tell me abt the black card incidents please. I don't know about this at all
I don't have time to search articles for details right now so this is just the sketch of the scandal: JC, Sofia, Elena (?), Froilan and Victoria were found to use credit cards that were not in their own name and the bills were paid every month by an aid and JC's cousin who also funded JC's travels through the year. The source of the funds is unclear and it's widely suspected as money laundering and tax evasion. JC probably hid his fortune with various people and these people paid his expenses with the money. Sofia and other family members were found to use the same credit card to pay for their living expenses. None of them declared the payments as income and paid taxes on it.
Last month, JC's attorney delivered a 6-figure check to Spain's Treasury to settle all associated back taxes, interests and penalty on behalf of Sofia and other family members. Spain's prosecutor(?) has been investigating. This is just 1 of 3 financial scandals involving JC. But this scandal also implicates Sofia and other family members. It's not clear whether the payment settled all potential charges against Sofia and other family members.
The only Borbon branch that's clear of the scandal? Felipe and his family.
