Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - Two former members and an ex-managing director of the CDU parliamentary group in the Wiesbaden city parliament have to answer in court from Wednesday (June 8). The men are said to have embezzled money from the parliamentary group and tried to cheat the state capital, as the Wiesbaden district court announced on Thursday.
The public prosecutor's office accuses them, among other things, of illegally billing legal fees via the parliamentary group in a legal dispute with a publishing group in 2018. The reason for the proceedings at that time was the newspaper's report on alleged money payments to one of the accused.
The three men deny the allegations, according to the court.
