Diocese of Würzburg: Ex-Immochef rejects allegations of infidelity
Würzburg – An ex-head of a church property developer accused of breach of trust has denied having brought the Diocese of Würzburg 300,000 euros with a real estate sale.
The 66-year-old had his defense attorney explain this to the Würzburg district court on Tuesday at the start of the trial. Rather, the prosecution’s calculations for the value of the area to be sold are wrong. “The indictment makes a targeted mood against my client,” said the lawyer.
The public prosecutor assumes that the accused brought the diocese around 300,000 euros in 2016 as managing director of the church SBW-Bauträger- und Verwaltungs-GmbH.
“The managing director needed the approval of the supervisory board for transactions that went beyond normal business operations. This applied in particular to the acquisition and sale of land,” said the prosecutor.
However, the 66-year-old did not obtain this approval when he sold part of an emigrant farm in the Würzburg district to an artist couple for around 1.4 million euros. The defense attorney disagreed. The purchase agreement was approved by the supervisory board.
According to the indictment, the entire area could possibly have been sold to other interested parties at a higher price. Turning down a purchase offer does not justify charges of breach of trust, however, said the defense attorney.
A judgment could be pronounced this Wednesday.
