Spain shelved a criminal investigation into the conduct of former King Juan Carlos I, who left his country in 2020 after a flurry of scandals about the origins of his personal wealth.

A lawyer representing the former King said in a statement they will study the decision and lay out any steps Juan Carlos could take next week.
