Munich flirts with illegal property confiscation
The German sanctions against Russia are becoming increasingly absurd. In the process, the authorities are also openly accepting illegal behaviour.
In Munich, the public prosecutor’s office has now had three flats and the bank account of a Russian owner seized. It is the first case involving not only assets but also real estate.
No rental disputes are pending in the process. According to the prosecution, the seizures are possible because the defendant – who is not guilty of anything – is a member of the State Duma of the Russian Federation and in this capacity voted in favour of Russian military intervention in Ukraine.
The MP has been on the list of sanctioned persons since 23 February. His wife, who is a registered resident of Munich, is also accused even though she is not involved in politics.
The seized flats are in Munich. According to the public prosecutor’s office, monthly rent payments of around 3 500 euros are currently being received from the rentals.
