Finance Minister Blümel does not want to bring in any complaints about his house search and offers the WKStA help in clearing up the case.
Despite the massive allegations of the ÖVP against the Economic and Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (WKStA), Finance Minister Gernot Blümel (ÖVP) does not want to lodge a complaint against the house search carried out on him. The deadline for this runs until the middle of next week. Blümel did not repeat his party’s criticism of the WKStA at a press conference on Thursday and, on the contrary, praised the “very professional and very sensitive approach”.
Blümel wants to work with WKStA
Blümel does not want to judge the allegations made by the ÖVP against the WKStA, as he says. For this he is “not well versed in law”. However, Blümel again emphasized “that I found the cooperation with the WKStA to be a very professional and very sensitive approach”. Blümel does not want to lodge a complaint against the house search of February 11th. The deadline for this is 14 days. “I want to do everything possible to clarify the matter, I don’t want to delay the process, but rather accelerate it, and therefore I will refrain from doing it.”
