Andrea Tandler, the daughter of ex-CSU general secretary Gerold Tandler, is accused of tax evasion and subsidy fraud. If convicted, he faces a long prison sentence.
Zurich - In connection with an indictment for transactions with Corona masks against the daughter of ex-CSU General Secretary Gerold Tandler, Andrea Tandler, the Munich public prosecutor's office also wants to investigate in Switzerland.
She had asked the canton of Zurich for legal assistance, said a spokesman for the public prosecutor's office in Zurich. "This mutual legal assistance procedure is currently being processed," said spokesman Erich Wenzinger on request. Further information could only be provided by the Munich public prosecutor's office. First, the Swiss broadcaster SRF had reported on it. Accordingly, it is about money laundering. The presumption of innocence applies to Tandler and other defendants.
Tandler is accused of tax evasion in three cases amounting to 23.5 million euros and subsidy fraud, according to the public prosecutor's office in Munich. The starting point of the case was commission payments that Tandler and two other people are said to have received in 2020. The entrepreneur had brokered contracts for personal protective equipment, in particular masks, between the Swiss company EMIX and various federal and state authorities. If convicted, Tandler and two other defendants face long prison sentences. According to the lawyer, Tandler and her co-partner "rejected all allegations made in public". Dpa
