In a month the first anniversary will be fulfilled after the break between Iñaki Urdangarin and the Infanta Cristina. After some photographs appeared in which the former Duke of Palma appeared with Ainhoa Armentia, the former handball player and the daughter of Don Juan Carlos issued a brief statement in which they indicated that they were ending their marital relationship.
Since then, both have led their lives separately, although they have coincided on several occasions, thus demonstrating that cordiality continues to exist. present between them. Much has been said during all this time about what kind of agreement they would be agreeing to make their separation official.
Now, Iñaki Urdangarin’s lawyer, Mario Pascual Vives, wanted to clarify some issues that have been discussed in recent weeks. In an interview on the show The world, from the Catalan radio station RAC1, has answered the question of whether the Dukes of Palma have definitively broken up or is it an impasse. “It’s an impasse, clearly,” she said.
Likewise, it has indicated that, for now, there is no signed separation document. The only piece of paper they signed was the statement they sent to the Efe agency and which he wrote himself.
In the said conversation, paschal lives has made it clear that Iñaki Urdangarin and the Infanta have not separated. «I can say what is not; It is not a cessation, it is not a separation or a divorce, it is a time that occurs », he clarified. Along the same lines, the lawyer has made it clear that the decision to end their marriage relationship is “a very private decision and they ask for respect for all the people they care about.”
The lawyer has continued to talk about a possible reconciliation on both sides and has said that “I always say that the Infanta Cristina is an extraordinary person and extraordinary people do extraordinary things and I know of a testimony of extraordinary actions by the Infanta Doña Cristina ». He also added that he does not know if that could happen because “one thing is to trust, I can think in my heart that I would like that to happen, but over the years, what I would like to see happen has not happened ».

In relation to the images in which Urdangarin appeared with Armentia hand in hand, he said that “»the photos surprised many people and me in particular, they were quite a surprisenow that things were calmer dealing with the subject of the third degree and probation and I had no dealings with journalists”, but he has also emphasized that he found out the same day they came to light, although He has qualified that he believes that Iñaki Urdangarin did know that it existed, but “I don’t know since when.”
The First Section of the Provincial Court of the Balearic Islands has determined the return of a total of 201,000 euros to the former Dukes of Palma, for having paid more for civil liability derived from the Nóos case, as has been advanced in its digital edition by daily The world.
As indicated by the aforementioned media, the lawyer of the Administration of Justice has issued a procedure, by which he urges the Government of the Balearic Islands to repay the funds to the former Dukes of Palma within ten days. The Court of Palma considers that, in the specific case of Iñaki Urdangarin, the athlete paid a higher amount than the one that corresponded to him and that, therefore, an amount of 132,695.03 euros must be returned to him. For her part, Infanta Cristina must be reimbursed a total of 68,479.97 euros and Diego Torres will be reimbursed 32,112.50 euros. As the aforementioned medium explains, Felipe VI’s sister would have already expressed her total agreement with the return.
However, it seems that Iñaki Urdangarin would not fully agree with this point. The former Duke of Palma has submitted a letter so that the part that is going to be paid to the Infanta is reimbursed to him. A document in which he ensures that this money corresponds to him and that King Felipe’s sister should not receive any amount as she is simply responsible for profit. On her part, Mrs. Cristina, through her representative, has also submitted a letter in which she requests the refund to her account.
However, the legal representative of the former handball player has qualified this information. Although there is a petition presented in the summer, there is a later one that annuls this one. Likewise, he has clarified the reason for this legal step, and it has nothing to do with putting up obstacles or generating tensions with his ex-wife.
As you have pointed out Paloma Garcia Pelayo, “It is stated that the highest payers of the sentence (Urdangarin) collect, and wives are excluded.” However, in October another petition was presented with a change of criteria “where the wives are recognized, since they have also paid.” Completing this information, Pascual Vives affirms that “not at all” his client has wanted to keep the total of 201,000 euros that will be returned to them. “A historical writing overlaps with another present, it would be an error because in no case has it been like that”, and he has settled, “He only wants what the lawyer of the Administration of Justice tells him that it is his turn.”
