Hesse: Prosecutor suspected of corruption: witness died

Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - A senior public prosecutor in Frankfurt has been the focus of investigations for some time now on suspicion of corruption: the case of the attorney general of the public prosecutor's office, who was arrested two years ago, caused a stir outside of Frankfurt. According to the public prosecutor's office, it is still not foreseeable when the trial against the long-standing expert in white-collar crime will take place. However, an important witness will be missing in the proceedings. The former partner of the accused lawyer, who started the case with her complaint, died, as a spokeswoman for the Frankfurt public prosecutor said. Hessenschau.de had previously reported about it.

The death has no influence on the investigation, it said. At the beginning of June, the public prosecutor's office brought charges against the former senior public prosecutor. He is accused of 101 cases of continued and commercial corruption, 55 cases of serious breach of trust and nine cases of tax evasion. The man is said to have received hundreds of thousands of euros for issuing expert opinions.
