In the last hours the Danish businesswoman Corinna Larsen, who was romantically linked to Juan Carlos I, is monopolizing the covers of the Spanish press and it is not because of any of his businesses, but because of the famous mansion he has in England and that is being investigated by the Swiss authorities.
The property, built in 1814 and located in the town of Bridgnorth, was bought, in 2015, after Larsen paid out about $ 7.8 million dollars.
The house is not in the name of the businesswoman, but was put in the name of Jade Trust, a foundation in Panama, whose beneficiary is Alexander, her son, who is currently 18 years old.
“It is correct that the acquisition was made via a loan from Solare in favor of Honeybird Corporation. I acquired this mansion through a foundation whose beneficiary was my son. I resorted to a structure like this because I believed that my son, once he was of age, would not be mature enough to manage this asset. I was 13 when we bought the mansion, “Corinna declared, at the time, before the prosecutor Yves Bertossa.
The imposing mansion, nestled in a plot of 200 acres, would have been bought by the businesswoman with part of the $ 77 million dollars that Juan Carlos I gave him, who was her lover between 2004 and 2009.
The house, known as Chyknell Hall, It has all the luxuries and amenities that we can imagine, even, Corinna would have paid, as she herself assured, close to $ 8 million in the realization of different remodeling.
“It was not in good shape, so I invested in major renovation work that amounted to around six million pounds,” he also mentioned in his testimony.
The property is equipped with 11 bedrooms, library, swimming pool and even with cricket ground, a very common sport in the European country.
It also houses five country houses, stables, tennis court, wine cellar, billiard room, among other spaces.
Corinna Larsen has been being investigated, since 2018, for the crime of money laundering, after in 2012 she received a millionaire donation from Lucum, a Panamanian foundation linked to Juan Carlos I.
“We created Jade Trust, which replaced Solare, as the lender for the purchase of the property. In other words, Solare’s initial loan must be repaid to the Jade Trust, whose beneficiary is my son, ”he confessed.
