the Federal Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz, has rejected criticism of the Opposition in connection with the scandal surrounding the now insolvent Dax-listed company Wirecard. "I think everyone must have in this Situation is always the willingness to explain everything and to want to identify what is needed. That's what we did,“ said the SPD politician on Sunday evening in the ZDF“heute Journal“.
For ten years, Wirecard had been of a large accounting firm examined, "which has a good reputation, but in the ten years not found out, what's going on," emphasized Scholz. "The First is, we need to examine why it happened, that the auditors have not found ten years out."
The payment processor Wirecard had given in June, alleged air bookings of 1.9 billion euros. The Munich public Prosecutor's office determined against a number of former and active Manager. The Opposition had made in the case of least pressure on the Federal government. It is, among other things, whether there have been failures in financial supervision, whether Federal government is the Minister of Finance Scholz responsibility and whether or not the Federal government, including the Chancellery, perhaps, Wirecard supported, although the suspicion of irregularity was already in the room.Date Of Update: 20 July 2020, 05:20
