Germany: Update from Reiner Fuellmich – is he being silenced? What do we know?

Share this

As the world keeps seeing people being incarcerated, you may have wondered what it is that we know of Reiner Fuellmich. He is a German lawyer who takes on the German goverment on COVID. He got arrested and has spent time in prison since October last year. In my humble opinion, I needed a moment to wrap my head around what Reiner Fuellmich was saying in the recording I have transcribed for you below, and I have had extensive exposure to “legalese”. So join me and read through it. It does make sense what he is saying.

The question: Did he embezzle 700K Euros? Is his incarceration justified? I am starting with a summary of “the latest” in absence of real updates for a few weeks now, only to then share details about what happened so far, only to continue with the only transcript of his statement you will find – which is mine at the very bottom. Allow me to rephrase. I sincerely hope that the dossier and the audio tape will end up being authenticated, but both sound about right to me.

Dr. Christof Misere (source) and Reiner Fuellmich are referring to dossiers they use as proof that the he is being silenced. His incarceration seems to be a set up. The dossier which Dr. Misere speaks of seems to be showing that German Intelligence wants Reiner Fuellmich to be disqualified to run for public office and cease control of the corona committee and its finances. It looks as though he has been under surveillance for some time now. It was instigated by several organisations like the Federal Criminal Office. This was planned since 2021. The house sale, where the money has not been returned, as it looks, and the Corona committee no longer receives either. Fuellmich’s anti-democratic tendencies are being mentioned.

Summary in the man’s own words: “At any rate, two conflicting stories. One is that of my accusers, they’re saying Reiner secretly stole money from the Corona Investigative Committee to live the high life. Our side of the story is, we did take that money, but we didn’t do it secretly, or covertly. We did it openly through um, uh, loan contracts, which were duly listed in the Corona Investigative Committee’s books and we did it to secure some of our donations from an imminent and acute danger of attachment by the DA’s office. Um, and of course I would have repaid the loan just as we had planned to do and even discussed this in public, when my former co-host and others decided to make it public, I wish they hadn’t. But I would have repaid the loan of course from the proceeds of the long-planned sale of my house, had the accusers not stolen that money by way of fraud and extortion.”

Details to wrap your head around – what happened so far To those of you who haven’t been following the case, here’s an update by Astrid Stuckelberger who has worked with him:

31 January 2024: International lawyer Dr REINER FUELLMICH, illegally arrested 3 months ago, attacks the public prosecutor office at FIRST DAY AT THE DISTRICT COURT HEARING IN GOTTINGEN (Germany) The allegations of embezzlement against him were only a pretext. “It’s about getting me out of circulation.” said Fuellmich Report on first day published by a journalist Translated from German ——-there will be more —— 700,000 euros embezzled? Göttingen lawyer Fuellmich denies allegations in court The Göttingen lawyer and former candidate for chancellor of the party “Die Basis”, Reiner Fuellmich, has had to answer to the Göttingen district court since Wednesday. He is accused of embezzlement; Fuellmich is alleged to have diverted donations into his own pocket. Six-figure sums are at stake. Maurice Arndt/dpa 31.01.2024, 2:33 pm Göttingen. The former candidate for chancellor of the small party “Die Basis”, Reiner Fuellmich, has denied allegations of embezzlement against him in court. In addition, he sharply attacked the public prosecutor’s office on Wednesday at the start of the trial at Göttingen Regional Court and described the circumstances of his arrest as kidnapping. Since Wednesday, the 65-year-old has been on trial on charges of embezzlement in two cases with a total value of 700,000 euros. In addition, the public prosecutor’s office accuses him of wrongfully receiving 15,000 euros in coronavirus emergency aid. […] The preventively imprisoned lawyer is said to have been a partner and one of four managing directors of the Corona Committee Foundation, which was founded in mid-2020 and financed by donations. Fuellmich said that the aim of the foundation was to answer questions about the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccinations, protective masks and the risk of Covid-19. Fuellmich responded to the allegations in his statement by saying that he had always been willing and able to repay the money to the foundation. He had real estate worth several million euros in return. Among other things, he had invested 200,000 to 250,000 euros in a whirlpool and a pool at his house in order to increase the value. It had also been agreed with the co-partner who approved the loans that the money would disappear. This was to protect it from the supposedly imminent seizure of the foundation’s accounts. With regard to the emergency coronavirus aid, he said that his law firm’s existence had actually been under threat at the time in question. Fuellmich was deported from Mexico and arrested in Frankfurt Investigators had reported in October that the lawyer had been deported from Mexico after a lengthy stay there and arrested at Frankfurt Airport. Fuellmich explained that he had been lured to the German consulate in Mexico under a pretext in order to arrest him there, as there was no international arrest warrant for him. He also assumes that the allegations of embezzlement against him were only a pretext. “It’s about getting me out of circulation.”

– The above stems for a post by Astrid Stuckelberger on LinkedIn.

He starts with good news. He mentions the aforementioned dossier which according to him provides the evidence he needs.

He is not being accused of a crime. He is being accused of committing a misdemeanour, section 266 StGB (German criminal code).

While I am no stranger to legalese, I will continue with a full transcript:

“This section 266 is unconstitutional on its case and it is vague ad overbroad which means that it is not clear what kind of behaviour is punishable. Precise words are as follows: “A person who violated a fiduciary duty to take care of another person’s monetary interests and thereby causes damage to the other person’t interests can be punished.” Legal scholars argue that this is, if nobody knows what this means, that this is a statute whose vagueness and overbreadth couldn’t be any worse. That this is a ruin of the law or an all-purpose weapon. This a Damocles’ Sword over every decision a director of a corporation makes, because anything and everything under this section can be criminal. That is in fact why the German Constitutional Court says that the use of this statute should be very restrained. In fact, mounting evidence shows that this misdemeanor shows that this misdemeanor as it has evolved into the pre-eminent business crime in German law is now being misused as a battlefield for strategic and personal quarrels, this is what the legal scholars say, that should be left to the civil courts to solve. Indeed, the available data suggests, they continue, that those who file criminal charges against directors of corporations, and that’s what I was, I was one of the directors for the SCA, the Corona Investigative Committee, they do this with the intent to misuse or abuse to pressure a director into paying damages which in a civil proceeding they would not have a chance of winning.

For a better understanding of, hang on, of the obvious and frivolous misuse of the criminal charges in my case for exactly this purpose, I’ll give you a more detailed analysis in a separate statement, but for purposes of this shorter statement, let me just summarise the facts and the applicable legal analysis. The decision that I and my former co-host made when we were informed in late October, early November of 2020 that professor Sucharit Bhakdi’s group’s bank accounts had been attached by the authorities, was to immediately remove some of the donations from our bank account so that our bank account wouldn’t be attached either, or rather it would be attached, we would not be put out of business, but would be able to continue paying our manager, out IT, translators, etc. and would be able to continue with our work. We decided to do this openly and transparently by way of a loan contract which was of course to be listed in the books of the Corona Investigative Committee. And, as even the court agreess, I was always both willing and capable of repaying the loan. I mean, I have lots of real estate which was way over two million dollars. Why would I not do this? I was the face of the Corona Investigative Committee. I was the one who was, uh, trying to make this know on an international basis. I gave interviews five days a week, in, uh, everywhere, all over the world, and I was the one who coordinated an international legal response on such a coordination, so why would I steal my own money? It doesn’t make any sense. Our bank accounts were in fact really in danger. There was a real and imminent danger because since lat July of 2020 right from the beginning of our work, um, our bank accounts, the Corona Investigative Committee’s bank accounts were being cancelled by the banks and the banks informed the authorities of possible money laundering. We knew that, we just did not know how far that had gotten. In the meantime, from the files of the of the district attorney, we know that they came really, really close and, uh, that the German version of the FBI was after us. The question now is: If this business decision was a violation of a fiduciary duty owed to another person to take care of their monetary interests, well, we believe that it is not the violation of this duty, because we don’t even know what this duty, because we don’t even know what this duty might be. If there is a duty owed to anyone it is to the donours, of course, not to the people who were accusing us with criminal activities, because under civil corporate law, this decision would clearly be covered by the famous business judgement rule. This is clearly a reasonable decision under the circumstances. We were under the impression, that, um, that an attachment of our bank account was imminent, so why not save some of the money, especially since we were perfectly able to repay the money from the assets that we had. And most donours and viewers of our show and our interviews had donated their money, of course, so that we would be able to conduct these interviews and show those real Corona facts that the mainstream media and politicians didn’t want us to know. And of course donours, and viewers would not have wanted their money to be taken by they very state actors, including of course, including the German judiciary whose actions we were questioning.

At any rate, here in this overview, let me now focus on the highly dubious statute and the even more dubious actors e dealing with in my case. Um, so where does this statute come from, what are its origins? This statute was introduced into German law and included in the German criminal code during the reign of the Third Reich by Hitler’s Nazis in 1933. This was made possible because the infamous Empowerment Act had enabled Hitler’s goons to bypass the legislators and get laws passed by the executive branch which is by the Nazis themselves. In fact, one of the most murderous of the so-called terrible judges of the Third Reich, the president of the then equivalent of the Supreme Court, Roland Freisler who sentenced the members of the resistance group under, uh, around count Stauffenberg, who tried to assissinate Hiterl on July 20th 1944 to death, weighed in on the importance of this statute and demanded in a law review article, that this statute should be seen as a Traitor’s Statute. These words from Germany’s dark past take on an astonishingly appropriate meaning in the context of my case, if we look at the actors involved, only much different from what the murderer Freisler had in mind.

Let us take a closer look at the actors in my case and at their actions. Let me focus on the three Berlin attorneys who filed the criminal charges against me on September 2nd, 2022. There are six reasons for us to conclude that all of them acted to destroy both the Corona Committee’s work and its sucessor ICIC’s work by defunding us. Reason number one: the, out of the three attorneys, who filed the criminal complaint, only two were ever members of the Corona Investigative Committee and these two were only brought on board by us as substitutes for two renowned scientists who had backed out of our work just before we started with our work. Two: these two replacements had never played a role in the Corona Committee’s work. They were in fact never interested in its work and had left already in late 2020 to start their own show which however failed because nobody wanted to watch it. Three: On numerous occasions, these two had demonstrated to my former co-host and me, that they were only interested in the donations. I’ll go into the details in my next statement. This will be shocking. Four: now with help of the district attorney and the criminal court, they are actually asking the court to award these donations to them. If they succeed, they will end up winning 5 million, uh, roughly 5 million Euros of the Corona Investigative Committee’s money, my money, my client’s money, and even Viviane Fischer’s money. Five: This is all the more astonishing in its brazenness as the Corona Investigative Committee’s bylaws states that none of us, none of the directors and shareholders, shall receive any payment for our work. They didn’t work in the Corona Investigative Committee anyway, and we shall not get, you know, any severance pay, no money if we leave the Corona Investigative Committee, if we leave our position as shareholders in that corporation, because the money, the donations, are only there for the work of the Corona Investigative Committee. Six: it is now obvious, especially from a commentary, uh, written by my former co-host and filed with the district attorney, a commentary on the criminal complaint that pretty much all of it is falsehoods and outright lies, punishable. All of this seems rather unbelievable, but it gets worse when you go into the details of this, which I will do in my follow-up statement. And it appears that the district attorney and the court are slowly but surely realising that something is terribly wrong. This is only after they started with the actual trial. This is when I finally was able to tell my side of the story, and now through the hearing, uh, of the witnesses they’re beginning to carefully understand that, um, some of these people are simply lying to them. Now, just to make it perfectly clear, there cannot be a shadow of a doubt, that those who filed these criminal charges or the criminal complaints against me are using or misusing criminal law for the purpose of extorting money from me and us which they wouldn’t stand a chance of winning if they sued me in a civil court. Their civil complaint would be immediately thrown out becaus the applicable corporate law, that is, the by-laws of the Corona Investigative Committee explicitly prohibits such payments. At any rate, two conflicting stories. One is that of my accusers, they’re saying Reiner secretly stole money from the Corona Investigative Committee to live the high life. Our side of the story is, we did take that money, but we didn’t do it secretly, or covertly. We did it openly through um, uh, loan contracts, which were duly listed in the Corona Investigative Committee’s books and we did it to secure some of our donations from an imminent and acute danger of attachment by the DA’s office. Um, and of course I would have repaid the loan just as we had planned to do and even discussed this in public, when my former co-host and others decided to make it public, I wish they hadn’t. But I would have repaid the loan of course from the proceeds of the long-planned sale of my house, had the accusers not stolen that money by way of fraud and extortion.” […]

He continued to say thank you for all the post, music that connects people, which he wants to share, including a couple of songs…

“Thank you very much, we will not give up, we will not give in”.
