A Spanish judge has ordered the leader of the anti-corruption group that filed tax fraud charges against Princess Cristina jailed without bail amid allegations the group sought a payoff of 3 million euros ($3.4 million) to drop the case and end her ongoing trial.

Judge Santiago Pedraz said in a ruling Monday that Manos Limpias (Clean Hands) director Miguel Bernad is under investigation for extortion, threats and membership in a criminal organization.
