RTL Nieuws (Niederlande) - 06.08.2013 - Klokkenluider zat 7 jaar onterecht in inrichting

"Een Duitser heeft zeven jaar onterecht vastgezeten in een psychiatrische inrichting. Hij werd in 2006 opgesloten nadat hij misstanden bij de Beierse HypoVereinsbank aan de kaak stelde.

Gustl Mollath, nu 56 jaar oud, beweerde destijds dat de bank op grote schaal de belasting ontdook. Zijn vrouw, die bij de bank werkte, was daar bij betrokken. Ze klaagde hem vervolgens aan voor mishandeling. De vrouw werd geloofd en Mollath, die hevig bleef ontkennen, belandde uiteindelijk in de inrichting.
Vorig jaar bleek uit intern onderzoek van de bank dat Mollath gelijk had. Er kwam snel een publieksactie op gang om hem vrij te krijgen. Een rechtbank in Beieren heeft hem vandaag vrijgelaten."

Free Man: Court Releases Whistleblower from Psychiatric Ward

Germany’s worst miscarriage of justice? 'Paranoid' husband freed after he was mistakenly held in asylum for seven years 



dw.de - 06.08.2013

Revue de presse - Gustl Mollath est libre

"A la Une : la libération de Gustl Mollath, interné depuis sept ans dans un établissement psychiatrique et qui se dit victime d'une erreur judiciaire, un procès en Hongrie et le rachat du Washington Post par Amazon. 


Sa photo est pratiquement à la Une de tous les journaux : tête ronde, cheveux grisonnants coupés courts, petite moustache. Gustl Mollath, 56 ans, est libre, titre la Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Un tribunal de Nuremberg, dans le sud de l'Allemagne, a ordonné sa remise en liberté en raison de doutes concernant des violences physiques qu'il aurait exercées sur sa femme, dont il est aujourd'hui divorcé. Le tribunal a en outre ordonné un nouveau procès pour cet homme considéré jusqu'ici par la justice comme dangereux. Une erreur judiciaire donc ? Pour le journal, cette affaire prouve au contraire que les mécanismes de contrôle de la justice fonctionnent correctement même si, c'est vrai, Gustl Mollath aura attendu sept ans pour obtenir le droit à un second procès."

05.08.2013 "Stimme Russlands" - Gustl Mollath: Fall für Transparency International -

Interview von  "Stimme Russlands" mit "Transparency International" zum Fall Gustl Mollath

"...Unsere Korrespondentin Daniela Hannemann sprach mit Edda Müller, der Vorsitzenden von Transparency International Deutschland.

Frau Müller, in einem anderen Interview für die STIMME RUSSLANDS erwähnten Sie, dass Sie sich neben der Korruption nun auch für Menschenrechte einsetzen wollen. In diesem Zusammenhang haben Sie sich auch an der Vergabe des Whistleblower Preises an Edward Snowden beteiligt. Nun setzen Sie sich auch mit dem Fall Gustl Mollat auseinander. In welcher Weise und warum?

"Ich glaube, dass der Fall Gustl Mollath in Deutschland gerade viele Menschen beschäftigt, so uns auch. Man hat den Eindruck, dass hier ein Mensch unschuldig in die Psychatrie gebracht worden ist inzwischen gibt es auch verschiedene Bemühungen das Verfahren noch mal aufzurollen, aber das ist zunächst noch einmal abgeblockt worden vom Oberlandesgericht in Regensburg. Es geht also hier um ein allgemein uns alle beschäftigendes Problem."

01.08.2013 - Journalisten aus China berichten über den Fall Gustl Mollath

 http://muschelschloss.blogspot.de/2013/08/journalisten-aus-china-berichten-uber.html 


"Há sete anos, Gustl Mollath foi posto em hospital psiquiátrico por supostamente ter agredido a esposa, em decisão que, para muitos, tentou desacreditar denúncias feitas por ele. Polêmico caso pode, agora, ser reaberto. 


Gustl Mollath detesta a vida no hospital psiquiátrico. Odeia os controles noturnos, que lhe tiram o sono, e diz que preferiria estar numa prisão convencional. A comida, afirma, provoca uma "lesão corporal". Há sete anos, ele está internado na ala psiquiátrica de um hospital de Bayreuth. E todo ano a Justiça avalia se sua internação é de fato necessária. Até hoje, a resposta foi sempre "sim".

Para muitos, no entanto, Mollath é vítima da Justiça – talvez até de uma megaconspiração. O restaurador de carros antigos, de 56 anos, quis desbaratar um esquema envolvendo lavagem de dinheiro, mas foi tido como louco. Na internet, seu caso vem sendo tratado à exaustão. A petição "Justiça e Liberdade para Gustl Mollath" já foi assinada por mais de 44 mil pessoas.


Tudo porque é possível que Gustl Mollath deixe o hospital psiquiátrico em breve, ainda que provisoriamente. O Tribunal Estadual de Regensburgo deve avaliar até esta sexta-feira (19/07) se o processo poderá ser reaberto. E caso as demandas de sua defesa forem consideradas cabíveis, tudo começará de novo – e Mollath aguardará a reabertura do processo em liberdade.


"Nenhum juiz quer tomar uma decisão e depois ser passível das mesmas acusações que estão sendo feitas agora", diz o professor de Direito Penal Hans Kudlich, para quem os juízes vão avaliar o caso com uma precisão extrema. Uwe Ritzer, que acompanha o caso desde o início para o diário Süddeutsche Zeitung, diz trata-se de um "fracasso total do Estado de Direito em várias de suas funções".

Mollath gek verklaard en opgesloten

14. Juni 2013 - de Gelderlander: "Gustl Mollath heeft de verkeerde vijanden gekozen."

 "De vrouw werkte in die tijd bij de Hypo-Vereinsbank. Mollath meldde na de aanklacht tegen hem dat zijn vrouw betrokken was bij het witwassen van zwart geld bij Zwitserse banken.
De echtgenote kwam met een verklaring van een psychiater en Mollath werd opgeborgen in een kliniek voor geesteszieken. De rechter die Mollath liet opnemen blijkt echter een kennis te zijn van de nieuwe man van de voormalige echtgenote van Mollath. En ook blijken de beschuldigingen van Mollath wel degelijk te kloppen."

 

Bavarian justice – a madhouse?

 A short summary of the complex events in the case of Gustl Mollath (source: Newsbattery – courtesy of the author and the blog owner)

by Hans Woestler
"Those were the days, when the Royal Bavarian District Court convened as a cult series in the German TV program ZDF, and always provided a moral to the story for its viewers. Many Bavarian actors acted in the series and created a comically bizarre but very human atmosphere. In January 1972, this TV series was stopped for good. In the meantime, one might think, politics and justice in Bavaria seem to have lost all common sense and degenerated into a madhouse – this is possibly a specifically Bavarian situation, which was also partially depicted in the curious stories of the TV series of the Bavarian Radio. A horrific reality has mutated out of this fiction."

The Telegraph - 13.06.2013
German committed over money-laundering claims tells of "hell"

"He told the committee: “Eventually I thought to myself, it can’t be long now before the prosecutors are on the doorstep.” Instead, he was charged with assault.
Describing his trial in 2006, Mr Mollath told the commission that he had been given no opportunity to speak to his defence lawyer before the start of proceedings, while the judge did not allow him to give evidence. “In short, it was hell,” he said.
He pleaded with the committee of MPs to be released from the psychiatric institution.
“If I should be held prisoner until the end of my life then I ask that it should be in preventive custody in prison. But not in this institution. I wouldn’t wish this situation on my worst enemy.” In an interview with a regional newspaper, published today, Mr Mollath’s ex-wife said he had only raised the money-laundering claims after he had left her. She said that repeated outbreaks of violence were the reason for the couple’s separation.
Mr Mollath denies assaulting his ex-wife. A documentary aired on the main German broadcaster ARD earlier this month claimed that judgment in the criminal case against him contained “glaring errors”."

Gustl Mollath wies auf Schwarzgeldgeschäfte bei der HypoVereinsbank hin - und landete in der Psychiatrie - Wahnsinn bei Gericht - Causa bringt Bayerns Justiz und CSU-Ministerin Beate Merk in Bedrängnis.


 Quelle "Im Gegensatz zu anderen Rosenkriegen hat der Fall Mollath aber auch große politische Sprengkraft. Denn Justiz, Behörden und Politik haben sich haarsträubende Fehler geleistet. Der Prozess gegen Mollath "verstieß von Anfang bis Ende gegen Fundamentalregeln des Strafrechts. Es wurden Beweisstücke nicht sichergestellt und nicht begutachtet, es wurde eine falsche Urkunde verlesen und zur Grundlage des Urteils gemacht", urteilt die "Süddeutsche Zeitung". Gutachter erklärten Mollath für krank, ohne ihn je untersucht zu haben. Und der im Prozess gegen Mollath Vorsitzende Richter Otto Brixner musste einräumen, die Verteidigungsschrift Mollaths samt Anlagen nicht gelesen zu haben."

The case Mollath comes to television 

by "Cheap Television"
"Review: Gustl Mollath is well situated. His wife is property consultant at HypoVereinsbank and advises wealthy clients in the financial investment in Switzerland. Gustl Mollath tried to dissuade her, informed her bank. When the dispute escalated, he filed charges black money transactions. But the Nuremberg prosecutors will instead Gustl Mollath themselves targeted.

Suddenly he allegedly abused his wife and slashed tires. A questionable report certifies him a “paranoid system of thought.” In April 2010 Gustl Mollath turns first to the editors of ARD policy magazine “Report Mainz” and asks for help. Anthes Since the authors Monika and Eric Beres investigate, bring to light more and more explosive details.

few months ago, then the spectacular turnaround in the case: An internal audit report of HypoVereinsbank comes to the conclusion that “all verifiable claims” Gustl Mollaths “applicable” are to the black money transactions of his former wife. The Regensburg prosecutors calls for the resumption of the proceedings.

have justice and politics has failed in the case? Or Gustl Mollath was actually aware plugged into psychiatry because he was rich tax evaders dangerous?"

           The Case Gustl Mollath – The Time of the Hyenas

A critical media research
English translation by courtesy of Frank Ludwig

  "Between 13th and 15th of Dec 2012 three different German newspapers published articles, apparently with an equal aim: To change the public opinion about Gustl Mollath, as not being a victim of the legal system, but, in fact, a real mentally ill person. Not a big issue, some may say, in times of economic pressure, poor salaries and a resulting lack of research time. This case, however, seems to demand special attention since: All three media made a complete turn in their view of the case, almost at the same date, but without any major new facts." 



Wrobiony w psychopatę

"Mąż oskarżający żonę o nielegalne operacje finansowe spędził siedem lat w bawarskim psychiatryku. Sędzia, nie wnikając w sprawę, uznał go za wariata. W Niemczech wybuchł sądowy skandal. "Ta sprawa upodabnia nas do Rosji" - pisze prasa.

W tej historii są chciwi bankierzy i sprawiedliwy, który chce pokrzyżować im plany. Ale to z niego sędziowie i biegli - naginając prawo - zrobili niebezpiecznego szaleńca. Na podstawie dramatu, który przeżył Gustl Mollath z Norymbergi, 56-letni inżynier z branży samochodowej, można by nakręcić porządny thriller.

Mało brakowało, by Mollath na zawsze przepadł w czeluściach zamkniętego oddziału psychiatrycznego szpitala okręgowego w Bayreuth. Ale gdy dziennikarskie śledztwa dowiodły skandalicznych prawnych uchybień, wreszcie zainterweniowali politycy."

 




 Justice Minister Merk. There Are Reasons to Doubt [Topic Gustl Mollath for English speaking readers]

by "wikinews030"

"Gustl Mollath is a German Whistleblower* who reported about cases of ‘black money‘ transfers from Germany to Switzerland. His own report to the authorities, a report that included names of involved bank accounts, was ignored by the Bavarian prosecution department (“Staatsanwaltschaft”). Instead, he was sentenced** to a life in the forensic psychiatry following personal charges filed by his wife.
The HypoVereinsbank made an internal investigation about the reported black money cases. The Bank confirmed in their audit report, signed 2003, that “all verifiable statements have proven to be correct” (“alle nachprüfbaren Behauptungen haben sich als zutreffend herausgestellt”). Some employees were dismissed then.
This audit report (“Sonderrevisionsbericht”) was requested by the Bavarian prosecution department in 2011. The Bavarian Minister of Justice, Beate Merk, stated in 2012, that “these are two different cases” (the files of the former wife  and the charges regarding black money transfers filed by him) and that he is in the psychiatry for good reason****."

 

German man locked up over HVB bank allegations may have been telling truth

The Gustl Mollath Affair – Who Is the Paranoid?

  by Dirk Ehnts, Econoblog101
Econintersect Opinion Blog

 "That, I believe, is the most horrible abuse of the legal system by the financial sector in Germany by far. The bank (HVB) kept a 2003 (!) report secret that would have substantiated Mr Mollath’s claims. The report is available on the website of SWR (in German). Mr Mollath is still locked up, but now it seems that his case will be revised. After the NSU affair where the German secret service did not recognize a Neonazi terrorist group killing 9 people with foreign roots, among other things, over a period of six years, the revelation that the justice system locks up a whistleblower as paranoid will further erode trust in the German state."


 La banque, la conseillère fiscale soupçonnée de fraude et le mari interné

 by LeMonde.fr

"L'histoire de Gustl Mollath est dramatique. Au début des années 1990, ce mécanicien reconverti dans la restauration de vieilles voitures découvre que sa femme, conseillère de patrimoine de la HVB à Nuremberg, fait passer d'importantes sommes d'argent en Suisse pour éviter à ses clients de le déclarer au fisc.
Il tente de l'en dissuader. Mais, lors d'une violente dispute en 2001, il en serait venu aux mains. Son épouse affirme avoir été frappée à plusieurs reprises, et étranglée jusqu'à l'évanouissement. Elle portera plainte deux ans plus tard.
Entre-temps, Gustl Mollath collectionne les preuves d'une fraude fiscale qu'il estime de grande ampleur. Il tente d'alerter la banque, le parquet de Munich, le fisc et même le ministre président de la Bavière.
Mais ce qui fait aujourd'hui la "une" ne suscite à l'époque aucune réaction. Pire, en 2006, sur la base d'expertises psychiatriques, Gustl Mollath est considéré par un tribunal de Nuremberg comme paranoïaque et dangereux. Il est depuis interné dans un établissement spécialisé."

 

The Gustl Mollath Scandal 

by  Alan McCornick - "Hepzibah"
 "A week ago I wrote about the fascinating case of Gustl Mollath, the man sitting in a psychiatric clinic in Bayreuth claiming he was railroaded by the Bavarian justice system.   Since then I’ve been trying to find a way to establish a neutral position and to understand what might be going on with the justice system in the German state of Bavaria.  It has all the makings of a major scandal, yet for reasons I can’t explain, nobody outside Germany seems to have picked up the story.  All links to references are in German, unfortunately, but I trust anybody who would like to poke around in the details can make good use of the Google translator. Translations are mine and I welcome corrections if they are needed."

  4. " Gustl Mollath a accusé une banque allemande de favoriser l’évasion fiscale vers la Suisse et se retrouve interné en psychiatrie. De nouveaux éléments de l’affaire semblent pourtant lui donner raison.

    D’obscurs transferts d’argent vers la Suisse, une belle banquière, de grosses cylindrées, un mari encombrant… L’affaire Mollath passionne depuis des jours la presse allemande et embarrasse Munich à un an des élections régionales. Gustl Mollath est un petit mécanicien sans histoires, amoureux depuis 1978 d’une belle banquière. L’histoire serait restée banale si Mollath n’avait découvert à la fin des années 90 que son épouse – conseillère en fortune à l’HypoVereinsbank de Nuremberg – transportait régulièrement vers Zurich des sommes d’argent pour le compte de clients désireux d’échapper au fisc. «J’aimais ma femme, j’ai voulu la protéger», explique l’intéressé.Les séjours de Petra Mollath en Suisse deviennent un sujet de disputes. Un soir de 2001, Mollath en vient aux mains. Le couple se sépare. Mais Mollath n’en reste pas là: en secret, il cumule les preuves contre l’activité de la banquière, écrit à la direction de l’HypoVereinsbank, au procureur, au gouvernement bavarois. Personne ne réagit."
