Around three years ago, the traditional airline Germania went bankrupt. Now two lawyers, namely ex-Germania boss Karsten Balke and insolvency administrator Rüdiger Wienberg, are in a legal dispute.
According to a report in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a lawsuit brought by Balke will be heard at the Berlin Regional Court on Wednesday. He has applied for an injunction to prevent subsequent corrections to the Germania books.
According to the media report, two other former Germania managing directors are said to have filed an urgent application with the court. The FAZ quotes Balke as saying that, in his opinion, the insolvency administrator wants to change the finances before filing for bankruptcy more dramatically than it really was. He also criticizes that he is still registered as managing director, but refuses to see it. The bankruptcy trustee rejects the allegations.
