Suspected of corruption, former King Juan Carlos left Spain on Monday, August 3, as announced by the Royal House in a statement released by the Spanish medium “El País.” Since then, no one has known exactly where the former King of Spain was. Dominican Republic, Portugal, France, Italy… There has been a lot of speculation. Now the doubt arises. The Spanish news site NIUS released this Saturday, August 8, 2020, on its Instagram account, a photo of Juan Carlos disembarking from a plane that had just landed at the Abu Dhabi business airport. According to our colleagues, a private jet took off from Paris before picking up Juan Carlos in Vigo, Galicia.
Juan Carlos accompanied by four bodyguards
Exiled in Abu Dhabi, Juan Carlos would stay in a luxurious hotel: the Emirates Palace. Information that our colleagues from the Agence France Presse tried to confirm by questioning a palace manager. “We don’t have VIP clients,” the latter replied to AFP. According to the Spanish newspaper ABC, Juan Carlos is surrounded by four bodyguards and an adviser. As the ABC media remind us, the destination chosen by Juan Carlos is not surprising given the “good relations” he maintains “with the Gulf monarchies.” It is also suspected that Felipe’s father received the modest sum of $ 100 million from the Panamanian foundation that belongs to the monarchy of Saudi Arabia. At the moment, the new place of residence of Juan Carlos has not been confirmed by the Royal House of Spain.
