Juan Carlos I, who abdicated the Spanish throne in 2014, left for the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This was reported on August 7 by the ABS newspaper.

The former head of state left Spain on a private jet from the city of Vigo. Later, the aircraft landed in Abu Dhabi. The flight took 7 hours 13 minutes. Juan Carlos stayed in the presidential suite of the Emirates Palace hotel, which cost about € 11,000 per night.

The possible departure of Juan Carlos from the country became known on July 29. After that, on August 3, the ex-head of state informed his son, King of Spain Philip VI, that he had decided to leave the country.

Earlier in July, it was reported that Catalonia would consider filing a lawsuit against the former monarch in connection with suspicions of corruption.

In early June, the Spanish Supreme Court prosecutor’s office opened an investigation against Juan Carlos over contracts for the construction of a high-speed railway in Saudi Arabia between Mecca and Medina. Corrupt facts are being established in this transaction.

In the spring, the Geneva prosecutor’s office launched an investigation into the origin of the € 65 million that Juan Carlos transferred to his ex-mistress Corinna Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn.
