Favourable treatment and intimidation
Palma has enjoyed, if that is the correct word, being the centre of attention for an historic court case. Some eight months after the trial for the "caso Nóos" ended, the spotlight was turned on Palma and Majorca once more. The verdicts having been announced, would Iñaki Urdangarin, the husband of Princess Cristina, be sent straight to prison? Having been handed a six year and three month sentence, there was a view that he most certainly should be. On Thursday, the court decided that he could remain at liberty, and no bail was demanded.
