Yesterday, the Munich Prosecutor's office have even led to the arrest of the former Chairman of the Board Markus Braun, however, was released on bail again. Aschheims mayor Thomas glass Hauser observed the balance-sheet scandal at Wirecard, of course, exactly – he looks on the municipality, but no extreme financial problems to come.

"A lot I must not say so", asks the greenhouses to understanding, "but it is also clear that a Dax-group effect in the municipality for tax purposes well." In the recent city Council meeting, the mayor had hinted that changes in the share price to hang together with the trade tax payments of a company. To say the developments at Wirecard the mayor of nothing: "In an ongoing process, it is not for me to rate something."

Thanks to the mediation of the community, a solution was found: Wirecard refers to a few Hundred meters away from the current company headquarters at the Einstein ring of the other buildings, to be able to continue to grow. A concession to the community was the approval for a Parking garage in the green belt, the concludes actually, the Dornach commercial area to the place.
