Bribes CSU employee is involved in mouth mask corruption
German CSU MP Georg Nüsslein is suspected of taking bribes to lobby for a mask supplier. Nüsslein would, according to research by The mirror, 660,000 euros in commission for millions of deals with the national Ministry of Health and the state of Bavaria.
On Thursday, Nüsslein’s office in the Bundestag was searched by justice, as well as thirteen other “objects” in Germany and Liechtenstein. On Friday afternoon, Nüsslein, who denies the allegations, stepped down as deputy leader of the CSU.
Nüsslein is said to have mediated for a German company that is not mentioned by name. (NRC)
Correction (April 2, 2021): An earlier version of this article stated that Nüsslein was mediating on behalf of the Swiss company Emix. That is incorrect and corrected above.
