Feb 26 (Reuters) – The Munich district court and prosecutor’s office are unaware of any formal steps to initiate court proceedings against Deutsche Bank co-Chief Executive Juergen Fitschen and four former board members, they said on Thursday, after a magazine reported that the quintet are to face trial in Munich.
German weekly Der Spiegel said that Fitschen and four former board members will be tried on suspicion of having provided false testimony in a civil case to resolve a dispute with Kirch Group.
The presiding judge at the Munich court, Peter Noll, has allowed the case to go forward, Der Spiegel said, citing unnamed sources.
