The Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry (PUA) of the Hamburg citizenship on the "Cum-Ex" affair continues its work today (2 p.m.) with the questioning of two witnesses.

Two employees of the tax office for large companies are to be interviewed.

In addition, the committee members have received a motion from the AfD parliamentary group on the possible bias of the committee chairman Mathias Petersen and the SPD chairman Milan Pein.

Hamburg - The background is the acceptance of party donations from the environment or directly from the Warburg Bank 2017 involved in the "Cum-Ex" scandal by the SPD in Hamburg.

The AfD therefore doubts the unrestricted interest in the education of the SPD representatives.

The committee is supposed to clarify the accusation that leading SPD politicians may exert influence on the tax treatment of the Warburg Bank.

The background to this are meetings between the then Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, and the co-owners of the bank, Max Warburg and Christian Olearius, in 2016 and 2017. There were already investigations against Olearius on suspicion of serious tax evasion.

The district court found the officials, who had been suspended for three years, guilty on Tuesday.

After the first meeting, the tax office for large companies initially waived additional tax claims in the amount of 47 million euros in 2016 after the limitation period had expired.

Another 43 million euros were only requested in 2017 after the Federal Ministry of Finance intervened.

Scholz had admitted the meetings in the committee of inquiry, but stated that he could not remember the content of the discussions.

However, there was no influence on the tax procedure.
