Deputy PM says former king’s ‘flight’ from Spain hurts…

MADRID, Aug 3 – Spain’s far-left Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias called former king Juan Carlos’ decision to leave the country amid a corruption investigation unworthy of a former head of state and said it compromised the Spanish monarchy.

“Juan Carlos de Borbon’s flight abroad is an act unworthy of a former head of state and it leaves the monarchy in a very compromised position,” Iglesias, who is the leader of the far-left Podemos party that is part of the ruling coalition, said in a Facebook post on Monday.

He said that Juan Carlos should respond for any alleged wrongdoing in Spain and added that a democratic government could not justify behaviours that undermine the monarchy. (Reporting by Joan Faus, editing by Andrei Khalip)
