Here's a complicated tale. A Spanish television network recently aired a hoax documentary about a failed 1981 coup to protest the fact that records of the resulting court-martial will remain sealed for a very long time. "Under the Supreme Court decision the court martial archives can only be opened 25 years after the death of the coup plotters, or 50 years after the attempted coup." King Juan Carlos (left) helped defuse the situation in 1981.
If any reader can find the Supreme Court decision online, please post a comment with the link.
