Former Spanish King Juan Carlos ‘leaves Spain’ amid corruption investigations

Spain’s former king Juan Carlos has left the country amid allegations of corruption. There are reports he is in the Dominican Republic, though no official announcement has been made. Prosecutors have long been investigating Juan Carlos. The longtime monarch is facing accusations he took a kickback from Saudi Arabia when Spanish companies won a contract to build a railway between Mecca and Medina. The King’s former lover – Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein – is suspected to have received the bribe money.
