Juan Carlos I wins the battle against Corinna in her lawsuit for alleged harassment

The British Court has archived the lawsuit that Corinna Larsen had filed against Don Juan Carlos, in which she asked for 146 million euros for alleged harassment. The decision, which was announced this Friday, October 6, puts an end to a judicial process that lasted more than a year.

The High Court of Justice of England and Wales was in charge of notifying the parties this Friday whether King Emeritus Juan Carlos I could be tried in the United Kingdom for the civil lawsuit for harassment and defamation filed by his former lover Corinna Zu Sayn-Wittgenstein -Sayn, or if, on the contrary, he dismissed the case.

In the end, Judge Rowena Collins Rice, of the King’s Bench Division of that court, has concluded that Felipe VI’s father cannot be tried in this country. One of the compelling reasons is that the lawsuit has not been filed in the country in which the emeritus has established his residence.

On July 21, the judge finished listening to the arguments that the plaintiff and the defense of the emeritus presented for four days, after Juan Carlos I asked the court to dismiss his ex-lover’s lawsuit and considered that England does not have jurisdiction. to process him.

Larsen accused the former head of state of having harassed her directly, or through third parties, between 2012 and 2020, allegedly interfering with her mobile phone communications or discrediting her through publications in the press.
