Locked Up For Whistle Blowing On Bank Fraud

Recommended Posts

That conspiriacy thread reminded me of this story.

You can probably find a more recent report if you know German. In fact the guy has recently been relesed, and will be retried.

In brief. Acrimonius split with wife. She accuses him of domestic abuse, he accuses her of running suitcases of hot money over the border to Switzerland, on behalf of the bank clients she works for.

"Allegedly" she got a doctor friend/client of hers to write a medical confirmation that she had been abused and the husband was a danger to the public. The trial judge was also a bank client, and he contacted the tax authorities to tell them not to bother with the investigtion, as the man was a nutter, and then used the fact the investigation had dropped as evidence that the defendant was a fantasist. I assume that the judge has benefited from the bank's "courrier service", although strangely, this has not been speculated on much.

A separate investigation into the bank subsequently revealed that the guy's allegations were all true, but he still remained locked up in a secure psychiatric unit for years. Pretty shocking. I suspect myself that a lot of Bavarian politicians will have been involved. I've mentioned before, that there seems to be a surprising amount of corruption in Austria and Bavaria, possibly because the are Catholic.

Of course, he could be lying.

His accusations of the bank running a tax evasion service have been publicly confirmed by the separate investigation into the bank. He could be a dangerous wife beater though. He looks pretty harmless, but you never know.

Appearances can be deceptive.
