Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - In the course of the letter affair about the suspended inspector of the Baden-Württemberg police, the public prosecutor's office is also investigating against the officer who started the allegations. The detective is said to have recorded an unauthorized phone call with the inspector, a spokesman for the Stuttgart public prosecutor announced on Tuesday.
On request, the Ministry of the Interior did not provide any information on the current work of the officer and the question of how the investigations had an impact on the professional position of the woman, with reference to the protection of privacy.
Interior Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU) had also come under considerable pressure because of the so-called letter affair. According to the minister, he had passed on a letter from a lawyer from the police inspector's lawyer to a journalist. Since Strobl agreed to pay a fine of 15,000 euros, proceedings against the minister should ultimately be dropped.
