Munich (dpa / lby) - The Munich public prosecutor's office has received an unusual criminal complaint against illegal parkers. It was asked anonymously and is aimed at police officers whose official cars are said to have parked unjustifiably at the Munich Frauenkirche, as a spokeswoman for the Munich I public prosecutor confirmed on Friday. The Munich media had previously reported on the possibly incorrectly parked company car.
According to the "Süddeutsche Zeitung", the ad alleges abuse of office and avoidance of punishment because the drivers of seven company cars are said to have placed red police batons behind the windshield - as a visible sign that the police are on duty.
However, the cars are said not to have been in use, but to have been there during a police service. According to the newspaper, presidents or vice-presidents of regional associations are said to have been driven to church services in these cars. However, the public prosecutor's office did not comment on the details of the complaint.
According to a spokesman, the Ministry of the Interior, which had invited to the police service for January 19, was informed of the complaint. "We cannot comment on ongoing investigations," he said.
