Although the younger sister of the King, Cristina de Borbon, was absolved of charges against her, she will have to pay a fine of 263,000 euros (280,000 USA dollars) jointly with her husband Urdangarin.
Inaki Urdangarin - the monarch's brother-in-law - was convicted by the Mallorca court of perversion of justice, embezzlement, fraud, influence peddling and tax fraud.

Although she was absolved, Princess Cristina will still have to pay a fine of €265,000 (£227,000; $282,000) as she has civil responsibility.
A lawyer with Cristina's defense team, Miquel Roca, said the princess was "satisfied for the acknowledgement of her innocence" but she was still convinced that her husband wasn*t guilty.
