Munich (dpa / lby) - Greens, SPD and FDP have now officially requested the announced committee of inquiry into the Nuremberg Future Museum. The focus is on the rental agreement for the museum, which is a branch of the Deutsches Museum in Munich. There is a suspicion that tax money was wasted and CSU nepotism was practiced, the factions said on Friday in Munich. Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) pushed through the project "against all rules and against all economic reason".
Renting the premises for the Nuremberg Future Museum was also criticized by the Bavarian Supreme Court of Auditors (ORH). The lease is "landlord-friendly". The landlord is a CSU party donor. The opposition also wants to clarify why Söder - at the time as finance minister - intervened in the decisive negotiation phase for the contract and not the responsible Ministry of Science. Nuremberg is Söder's hometown.
On Thursday, the Greens, SPD and FDP had already officially requested the announced committee of inquiry into the second main S-Bahn route in Munich. This means that there will be four committees of inquiry in the state election year - a record at least in the recent past. A first such body is already dealing with the mask affair, a second again with the racially motivated crimes of the "National Socialist Underground". In Bavaria, one fifth of the members of the state parliament can force the establishment of a committee of inquiry.
The CSU had reacted with sharp criticism to the forthcoming appointment of the two new investigative committees and accused the opposition of election campaign tactics: In truth, the opposition is not concerned with clarifying the matter, but with conducting election campaigns. That is why the date of the appointment was chosen so late. In fact, the time pressure is great: the state elections in Bavaria will be in autumn 2023. By then, the committees must have finished their work.
