05.06.2019: Richtigstellung des NZZ-Artikels vom 05. Juni 2019

Coordinated operation in a cybercrime case

Richtigstellung des NZZ-Artikels vom 05. Juni 2019

Die NZZ schreibt im Artikel «Michel Platini giesst Öl ins Fifa-Feuer» vom 05. Juni 2019, dass Bundesanwalt Michael Lauber ein Treffen mit Rinaldo Arnold vom 08. Juli 2015 gegenüber einem ausserordentlichen Staatsanwalt des Kantons Wallis «nicht erwähnt» habe. Diese Darstellung ist falsch. Richtig ist, dass die BA diese und eine weitere Begegnung zwischen Bundesanwalt Michael Lauber und Rinaldo Arnold sowohl gegenüber der AB-BA wie auch gegenüber dem ausserordentlichen Staatsanwalt des Kantons Wallis offengelegt hat.
