Media: Schlesinger affair: NDR sees no violation at Göring-Film

In the felt affair about the dismissed RBB director Patricia Schlesinger, the ARD docu-drama "The Good Goering" has also come under criticism - according to the result of an examination by the North German Broadcasting Corporation (NDR), everything went correctly in the production .

The public broadcaster announced on Tuesday: The special audit commissioned by the NDR came to the conclusion "that the colleagues involved from production and editing acted and worked appropriately. The externally called anti-corruption officer of the NDR also recognizes After a thorough examination, no reproachable behavior".

Schlesinger's husband Gerhard Spörl had worked as a screenwriter on the NDR/BR film that was broadcast in 2016 - during this time she was head of the NDR program area. Schlesinger is exposed to accusations of felt and nepotism in her time as RBB boss. The Berlin public prosecutor's office is investigating the 61-year-old, her husband and ex-"Spiegel" journalist Spörl, and the resigned station chief inspector Wolf-Dieter Wolf on suspicion of infidelity and acceptance of benefits. It is the presumption of innocence. Schlesinger and Wolf rejected allegations.

According to NDR information, the RBB case led to the processes for the documentary drama being re-examined. The question was whether there were any advantages in the award of the contract due to the private relationships.

"The relevant compliance rules of the NDR were observed. There were no indications of irregularities during the test," it said. Compliance means monitoring a set of rules that an organization has in place to prevent corruption, for example.

The docu-drama is about the brother of the Nazi Hermann Göring. According to earlier NDR information, the two screenwriters Jörg Brückner and Gerhard Spörl were engaged via the production company of ARD talker Sandra Maischberger.
