Government support for Princess Cristina accused of tax fraud is dwindling.


Madrid.—Government support for Spain’s scandal-plagued Princess Cristina has waned, with its new parliament spokesman saying she should consider taking herself out of the line of succession after being ordered to stand trial on tax fraud charges.
“Cristina should reflect on whether she should renounce her rights of succession,” said Rafael Hernando in an interview published on Sunday in a newspaper interview. Just one week ago, the prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, said he was convinced of her innocence. But on Friday, four days after her indictment, he said: “I can’t get involved.” A day earlier, Cristina’s brother King Felipe said, without naming her, that public figures should not become rich by exploiting their positions.
