Catalonia’s biggest civil society organisation, Òmnium Cultural, has filed a criminal complaint with the Spanish Supreme Court against king emeritus Juan Carlos for the crimes of corruption, tax fraud and money laundering.

At a press conference, Omnium presented the campaign ‘Let’s make it fall’ to denounce the corruption of the Spanish monarchy once the Supreme Court’s Prosecutor has taken over the investigation on the construction of the high-speed train link to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia and the opaque business of the king Spanish emeritus.

The entity has also submitted a report to the Swiss government asking to block the funds of Juan Carlos’ bank accounts in accordance with a 2016 federal law that empowers the freezing of assets of an allegedly illicit origin.
