Before the Wirecard investigation committee of the German Bundestag, a key figure appeared in the form of the former CEO Markus Braun. To the questions of the MPs, he replied – nothing.
He sits in the hall in a black jacket and black turtleneck: Markus Braun, the former stock market star and former head of the German financial services provider Wirecard, which was declared bankrupt in June. He stoically endures the storm of flashlights until the photographers have to leave the hall. He then answered the chairman’s question about his personal details well: He was 51 years old, “currently lives in the Augsburg correctional facility” and is a business IT specialist.
