Spain's Princess Cristina to have assets blocked amid tax fraud case

Spain's indicted Princess Cristina has been ordered to present a list of assets that will be blocked in order to cover her €2.7m bail fee while she awaits trial on tax fraud charges.

Palma de Mallorca Judge Jose Castro has given the princess until Friday afternoon to present the list.

The court said the judge will verify whether the assets cover the bail amount and then begin blocking them.

It said no property would be seized from the princess but that she would not be able to sell any of it.

Cristina, 49 - King Felipe's sister - was indicted last December as part of a four-year probe into her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, who faces charges ranging from money laundering to fraud.
