The satirist Jan Böhmermann is causing a stir in his new program ZDF Magazin Royale.

After VW, this time he takes on Wirecard - and an authority that slept through the scandal.

Munich - Friday evening on

ZDF

becomes the leading German satire bastion.

First

Oli Welke

causes

laughter in today's show, then

Jan Böhmermann

turns

on ZDF Magazin Royale.

On Friday, the tough satirist buttoned up the insolvent payment service provider

Wirecard

.

For 18 minutes, Böhmermann raced through the incredible details of the “most insane business crime of the century”.

The focus: the fleeting ex-Wirecard board member

Jan

Marsalek

- "a man with eggs made of steel".

The Austrian didn't just bag any deals with criminals around the world or launder money, but invented billions and “brought German banking crime to a whole new level”.   

Only a week earlier, Böhmermann had

targeted

VW

and really heated it up for the carmaker in a well-received article.

The parforce ride covered the founding history of the main plant in

Wolfsburg

during the National Socialist era through a legendary press conference by the former VW boss Ferdinand Piech ("Whenever it comes to war, there are winners and losers. And I intend to to be the winner with our partners ”) to the controversial VW plant in

Xingjiang

in China.

There are said to be 25 prisons and labor camps for re-educating the Uyghur minority within 25 kilometers of the site.

Wirecard: Jan Böhmermann dismisses Bafin

Wirecard was

due

on Friday

.

In addition to the auditors from

EY

, who dutifully nodded all of the annual accounts for years, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (

Bafin

) and head of the authorities

Felix Hufeld

(“wearing old Jan Marsalek ties full-time”) got their fat off.

Instead

of supervising

Wirecard

, the Bafin employees “would have preferred to

speculate

with

Wirecard shares in

order to make cash themselves,” joked Böhmermann.

And when the well-known British financial newspaper the

Financial Times

pointed out

countless oddities at

Wirecard

, the Bafin preferred to report the FT journalists instead of dealing with the allegations.

Also, the earlier that

CSU

-Minister

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg

and Chancellor

Angela Merkel

for

Wirecard

mentioned Böhmermann have used with relish.

Wirecard: Böhmermann website collapses

The program via the payment service provider from

Aschheim

near

Munich

caused a stir in the social networks

.

On YouTube alone, the program was viewed almost 500,000 times by noon on Monday (November 30).

"The pale, thin boy shaves completely through again," wrote a user on the video portal.

"Great!

Brilliant!

Everyone has to see that ”, others.

"Mann Böhmi, what would the German media landscape be without you?"  

https://t.co/eqzr1mZ379 is down.

Probably the Russians, the Austrians, Belarus or Markus Braun's view.

We are working on it.

A specially set up website (www.janmarsalek007.cash) went straight to its knees on Friday evening.

There, Böhmermann, together with the

Handelsblatt, published

a secret list of companies and friends with whom Marsalek

allegedly removed

money from

Wirecard

accounts.
