Court heaps humiliation on ailing Montserrat Caballémain
A Barcelona court has ordered a forensic medical specialist to examine the great soprano in her home and report back on the state of her health.
Ms Caballé 82, failed to show up for a court hearing two months ago to settle her outstanding tax obligations. She pleaded ill health. The judge is now demanding evidence of her medical condition.
The diva faces six months jail and a quarter-million Euro fine over a long-running tax avoidance charge.
