"Nothing to it" about allegations ?: HSV board senses "campaign from competitors"

Thomas Wüstefeld is confronted with an ad, and there is a report about alleged illegal business by the medical entrepreneur. "Nothing to it," says the CFO of the second division soccer team. Instead, the HSV board speaks of a campaign.

Medical entrepreneur and HSV board member Thomas Wüstefeld has denied a report on allegedly illegal drug transactions. "I can assure you that there is nothing to it," said the 53-year-old CFO of the second division soccer team Hamburger SV. "Behind this is a campaign by competitors," assured Wüstefeld. The "Spiegel" had reported that Wüstefeld had started manufacturing cannabis products three years ago and was offering oils containing cannabidiol as medical products.

The Hamburg authority for justice and consumer protection is now examining whether the sale could have been illegal. The drugs are said to have come on the market via a Luxembourg company. In 2020, according to the report, the authorities there banned distribution and ordered a recall. Swiss control authorities have also found that the products "do not meet the basic requirements for medical devices," it said.

The Hamburg authority for justice and consumer protection also got involved, but after the first check did not feel responsible because the manufacturer was based in Luxembourg. But now the authority is taking action, since Wüstefeld is now said to be selling its oils through a branch in the Netherlands. You are in contact with the authorities there, a spokesman told the "Spiegel".

Meanwhile, chief public prosecutor Liddy Oechtering confirmed to the "Hamburger Abendblatt" that a complaint against Wüstefeld had been received. She is now recorded in the system and has infidelity as a central charge of the crime. That, too, is an old story that has nothing to do with it, said Wüstefeld. Oechtering said the facts are now being examined. Whether the public prosecutor sees an initial suspicion and initiates an investigation is not yet clear.
