Rent Payment Clue in Wirecard’s Jan Marsalek Quest

Wirecard AG updates

Munich police have investigated a € 80,000 payment from a Dubai bank account to the owner of Jan Marsalek’s fiancee in Munich, which could prove to be a rare link to the former fugitive Wirecard executive.

The 41-year-old Austrian fled in June 2020, just days before Wirecard became insolvent after admitting there was no € 1.9 billion in cash and half of his income. Marsalek, who is on Interpol’s most wanted list, is accused of “fraud in the billions” by Munich prosecutors.

The collapse of what was once a high-flying electronic payments company, which at its peak in 2018 was a member of Germany’s top-class Dax stock index, valued at € 24 billion, is one of the world’s biggest accounting scandals. great of postwar Europe.

Marsalek left his longtime girlfriend in Munich, whom police have questioned several times, according to people briefed on the investigation. Since Marsalek and his girlfriend were engaged, she can claim marital privilege and refuse to testify.

Marsalek’s fiancee rented a luxury apartment in Munich and paid a monthly rent of about 6,600 euros. Earlier this year, your landlord received a one-time payment of about € 80,000, which is the value of 12 months of rent.

The money was transferred from a bank account in Dubai of a person with an Arabic name and came with the reference “für Jan” (“in the name of Jan”). The money was transferred to the bank account used to manage the tenant’s deposit, which is different from the one used to settle monthly rent payments, people briefed on the matter told the Financial Times. The owner reported the payment to the police, according to these people.

A spokeswoman for Munich public prosecutors told the FT that investigators received a report of suspicious activity from the owner’s bank in that context, and declined to comment further on the payment, which was first reported by Handelsblatt.

It is unclear if the person to whom the money was sent actually exists or if it was an alias used by Marsalek. A name very similar to that of the sender appears as a customer of one of Wirecard’s Asian business partners in one of the documents reviewed by KPMG during its special Wirecard audit.

Attorneys for Marsalek and his fiancee did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Marsalek is one of the most wanted white collar suspects in the world. A day after Wirecard auditor EY in June 2020 refused to approve the group’s 2019 results, Marsalek took a taxi to a small airport in Austria, where he boarded a private jet that paid cash, according to a Austrian police document seen by him. FOOT.

He flew to Minsk, where his trail was lost. “Eventually we will catch him,” Munich chief prosecutor Hildegard Bäumler-Hösl told MPs during a parliamentary inquiry into the scandal earlier this year.
