A 56-year-old man from Germany, who was accused of making up a fraudulent scheme for laundering money by several major banks and was committed to a high security psychiatric ward, can actually be telling the truth.
Gustl Mollath has spent the last seven years in a high security psychiatric hospital because of his claims that his ex-wife and the rest of the staff of HVB bank in Munich, Germany were secretly smuggling large amounts of money into Switzerland. Following his accusations, he was deemed mentally unstable and suffering from paranoia and ordered by court to enter the high security mental health facility.
Recently though, some new evidence involving a detailed audit report of the bank has shown that such illegal activities were actually going on at the time. There were indications that employees were involved in tax evasion and money laundry schemes. As a result of this discovery Mollath’s ex-wife was fired along with other employees suspected to have been part of the criminal activity.
Now that this internal audit report has become public, the case of the man possibly wrongly accused and confined to a psychiatric ward for nearly a decade and the scandal surrounding one of the biggest banks in Germany has brought so much pressure on the Bavarian Government that it may actually bring it down, along with the German Minister of Justice Beate Merk.
