It is also about one of the key figures of the balance sheet fraud scandal, the former Wirecard sales director Jan Marsalek, who went into hiding. The born Austrian is wanted by the judiciary and is on the run. The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Sakharova, wrote on Twitter that the investigation into the insolvency of Wirecard in Germany in 2020 was continuing: “The speculation about the allegedly close ties between the managing director J. Marsalek and the special services of Russia are causing confusion. We warn Germany against politicizing this story. ”
The SPD chairman in the committee of inquiry, Jens Zimmermann, read the tweet in the committee. What exactly the Russian Foreign Ministry was referring to is unclear. On Friday morning a representative of the German Chancellery was asked in a closed meeting whether the Chancellery knew where Marsalek was.
SPD chairman Zimmerman told the German press agency: “Today’s statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry is bursting like a bomb in the deliberations of the Wirecard investigative committee.” Connections from Marsalek to Russia have long been in the room, as well as speculation about his whereabouts, said Zimmermann. “Why the Russian government is now obliged to take this step raises new questions. Instead of a clear rejection of possible connections, the Bundestag is apparently to be intimidated in its investigation.”
The Union chairman in the committee of inquiry, Matthias Hauer, told the German press agency: “We will certainly not be impressed by a Russian government tweet. I assume the other parliamentary groups see it the same way.”
