For these words the prosecution asked 15 months in prison for the crime of libel to the Crown for the retired Colonel Martinez , from article he wrote in 2011.

After his arraignment, Martinez had some words for the press. “I came out of respect for the law, not for these judges. I have not committed any crime, because, apart from military, I’m a writer and historian who has the right to freedom of expression. I have not slandered the head of state, or even care, I just want  him to go. “

In the Hall of the Central Criminal Court, the trial continued without witnesses or accused. The prosecution has maintained its request for conviction for “libel and slander to the Crown”

”The King represents the monarchy and the entire dynasty,” asserted the prosecutor, who also appreciated crimes of slander the allegations made in the publication, which blamed the king for ”misappropriation of public funds, corruption, high treason (23-F), killing his brother and more. “
