Spain’s former king Juan Carlos has been dwelling inside the United Arab Emirates since three August, the Spanish royal palace has confirmed, putting an end to speculation over his whereabouts.
On three August the ex-king made the shock announcement that he was leaving Spain amid a corruption investigation.
The 82-year-old travelled to the UAE on three August “and he stays there”, a spokesman said, giving no additional particulars.
The ex-king’s funds are beneath scrutiny in a severe corruption probe.
He denies any wrongdoing and has said he’s accessible if prosecutors should interview him.
