SPAIN'S Princess Cristina will not appeal a court ruling summoning her to testify over tax fraud and money-laundering charges and will appear before the Palma de Mallorca court, her lawyers said today.

"Her Royal Highness has decided to renounce her right to appeal... and to appear voluntarily before the judge," the lawyers said in a statement.

 

The court had earlier told Reuters the lawyers had notified on Saturday her decision to testify
