Corruption in Germany
In the photo the house of the former German President Christian Wulff, because of whom he resigned.
It was in 2012. It turned out that the president quite legally received a loan for the construction of this house, regularly repaid it, but a friend at the bank helped to get him a percentage a little lower than the average. Which is also legal if he were not the president.
They wrote in newspapers - using personal connections, I received a soft loan.
A terrible corruption scandal broke out, parliamentarians demanded to send the president to resign, but Merkel otmazala. The case began to slow down when Wulf committed another serious offense - he called the Bild editorial office and asked the journalist not to publish an article about the loan without his explanatory commentary.
Here Merkel could not otmazat him. An attempt at pressure on the press, undertaken by an official.
The latest nail that was scored in the coffin of Wolfe's career was the information about another of his corrupt excesses. Publications Berliner Zeitung and Frankfurter Rundschau reported that Wulf, along with his wife Bettina in the summer of 2011, issued a pre-order for the Audi Q3. Due to the high demand for a car, the presidential couple was to receive a model in a year.However, according to the media version, Audi handed over the same car to the spouses for free, and made it even in the summer, several months before the model officially entered the market.
The result is retirement.
The president in Gremania is representative, but not empty.
