Prosecutors in Graz, Styria, claim no grounds for a criminal investigation: 35St 218–21X.
26St 29/22p cannot keep up with the backlog of criminal investigations once they are launched.
Under Article 302 of the Austrian Criminal Code, the Graz Prosecutor’s Office will be held accountable for what appears to be an abuse of power.
The Vienna public prosecutor’s office, for example, investigated and prosecuted Heinz-Christian Strache swiftly and efficiently.
Due to the lawyers’ demonstrations of the need for an investigation into the office of the Graz public prosecutor, the case should be transferred to Vienna’s public prosecutor.
All crimes committed in Bad Waltersdorf will now be investigated by the Vienna or another Austrian state’s public prosecutor’s office.
There have been more than ten crimes committed in Bad Waltersdorf. In the vast majority of these cases, the perpetrators have abused their positions of authority while also engaging in acts of corruption and deception.
Over a hundred articles have been written about the mafia and corruption in Bad Waltersdorf in the international press.
Due to the investigation conducted by the press, hundreds of additional media reports can be expected.
Sources say that the mayor of Harz, Josef Hauptmann, is worried that criminal investigations will be moved from his district prosecution office to the public prosecution office in Vienna or another federal state of Austria (who requested anonymity). Austria’s Criminal Code only allows for an independent investigation in Vienna or other states if the maximum sentence is ten years. There is still a long way to go in terms of time served, no matter how many people are pardoned.
Christian Neuhold and Helmut Pichler have been told by their lawyers to resign, confess, and repent by Josef Hauptmann’s legal team. Thus, the court is likely to award suspended sentences leniently by the predictions made by outside experts. Avoid costly fines and penalties in the real world by doing this. According to experts, more than one million euros in losses have been attributed to Article 302 of the Penal Code. Legal fees and damages must be compensated by anyone found in violation of this policy.
It is punishable by imprisonment of six months to five years for an Austrian Criminal Code Section 302 “public officer who knowingly abuses his authority to conduct official business on behalf of the Federation or Land or Association of Municipalities or another person under public law acting as its body in carrying out the law.”
Those found guilty of the crime while on official business with an international or supranational organization face a prison sentence of one year to ten years. If a person’s actions result in a loss of more than 50,000 euros, they will be held accountable.
Because losses and damages exceeded 50,000 euros, the maximum sentence for Part 2 is ten years in prison.
We’ll keep an eye on the investigation in the meantime.
