BERLIN, March 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Hannover’s prosecutors on Friday evening searched the home of Germany’s former president, Christian Wulff, in Grossburgwedel, the daily Bild said.
The search began at 17:15 local time with the consent of the former president, although the prosecutors did not have the search order. According to the publication, the prosecutors confiscated a PC and a hard disc. No other details are available at this point.
The Hannover Prosecutor’s Office on February 18 began a former investigation of Christian Wulff, who lost his presidential immunity against court prosecution the moment he left the highest state post on February 17. Wulff had to resign after a string of contracts over his close contacts with big business tycoons, who extended loans on favorable terms and paid for luxurious hotel suites. The prosecutors are to find out whether such services influenced Wulff’s decisions during the period when he was prime minister of Lower Saxony.
