New evidence linking Spain's Princess Cristina to a money-laundering scheme has been heard in court. 

According to theolivepress.es, the 49-year-old royal - who appeared in court in March this year over alleged tax evasion and money laundering offences linked with her husband, Inaki Urdangarin and the firm Aizoon, which she co-owns - may have to return to the dock again after new emails linking her to the case were uncovered.

The documents are part of an appeal by Diego Torres, Inaki's ex-partner, and his wife Ana Maria, who claim Cristina - the sister of Spain's King Felipe VI, who was sworn in last month following the abdication of their father Juan Carlos - was fully aware of her husband's business and wrongdoing.

At first the mother of four was only called in to court to give evidence in the case until the investigating judge, Jose Castro, decided she should be tried alongside her husband and other suspects.

Princess Cristina also tried to appeal against the embezzlement charges that had been brought against her earlier this month.

Her lawyer Miquel Roca said at the time: "It is not a problem of optimism or pessimism, it is a question of absolute conviction of the innocence of our client."

If convicted by the provincial court in Palma de Mallorca, Cristina could face up to 11 years in jail.
