The main customs office in Munich, on behalf of the Munich I public prosecutor, is apparently investigating current and former board members of FC Bayern Munich for possible minimum wage violations on the club’s own campus. That comes from a report by WDR-Magazine “Sport inside”.
Accordingly, the current CEO Oliver Kahn, his predecessor Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, as well as Hasan Salihamidzic, Jan-Christian Dreesen, Andreas Jung and Jörg Wacker (no longer in office) are affected. They are accused of having known about illegal dumping wages on campus. The witness interviews are scheduled to begin at the end of January.
Specifically, it is about the suspicion of “withholding and misappropriating wages” as well as “incorrect keeping of hourly records, failure to grant the minimum wage”. This can be seen in a letter from the main customs office that “Sport inside” is available.
In such cases in stock corporations, investigations are first carried out against the board of directors, as a spokesman for the main customs office told “Sport inside”. Only then would the guilt of individual persons be determined. For this reason, campus director Jochen Sauer has not yet been in focus.
