Palma.—Mario Pascual Vives, the lawyer for the King´s son-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarin, fears that his client has already been found guilty by the Spanish people even before he goes on trial. Vives is deeply concerned at attitudes in the media and amongst the Spanish people.

Urdangarin is being investigated over claims that he embezzled six million euros alongside his business partner Diego Torres. The Duke has denied any wrong-doing. He appeared in court in Palma earlier this month to underline his innocence.
