The investigation against Franz Danner is nearing completion. In October, the former Vice President of Mazda Europe was extended.
Franz Danner will probably have to answer in court at the beginning of next year. The former Vice President of Mazda Europe is under investigation for embezzlement and tax evasion. "The investigations are well advanced. I expect a conclusion soon," said Senior Public Prosecutor Ulrich Bremer from the Cologne public prosecutor's office in the Autogazette.
Danner is in danger of fleeing
Danner is suspected of embezzling funds and evading taxes on a large scale. Mazda Europe is said to have suffered damage in the tens of millions. The former car manager has been in custody in Cologne since March. "The pre-trial detention period was extended by the Cologne Higher Regional Court at the beginning of October," continued Bremer. If there are special circumstances, the six-monthly pre-trial detention can be extended again and again. The circumstances are given with the Austrian. There is still a risk of flight.
Danner resigned on March 10, 2012 after almost eight years at Mazda after he had previously held managerial positions at Kia and Alfa Romeo. (AG / TF)
