BERLIN, Oct. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Dr. Gerhard Strate on behalf of and commissioned by the Managing Directors of PWK Jewelry Company Ltd., based in Thailand and engaged in the production of jewelry for Elumeo SE and Juwelo Germany, (PWK) filed a complaint against the discontinuation of investigations by the public prosecutor's office into elumeo's managers and Chairman of the Board. The managing director of elumeo SE, Bernd Fischer, who was also investigated, on behalf of the company, announced that they considered the complaint "hopeless". Dr. Gerhard Strate, lawyer, explained this:
"The elumeo SE tries to give the impression, that now is the end of the criminal investigation against the elumeo SE managers Wolfgang Boyé, Bernd Fischer and Thomas Jarmuske. That's just not the case. With the filing of the complaint against them only another necessary legal step was taken in the direction of the clarification of the facts. In the course of the inspection of the criminal investigations file, which was granted to us only a few days ago, we came across very important facts and new insights. These new findings that we were able to extract from the criminal case provided us with very good reasons to appeal against the termination of the investigation.
"Of course, we are sure that the appeal against the attorney's order will be a success. The Defense Attorneys for those we accused had submitted their comments along with various documents to the Prosecution. Just one week later, the responsible public prosecutor had completed her two-and-a-half-page decision to dismiss our claims. She was able to do that only because she accepted the arguments and claims of Defense Attorneys one by one, without checking their legitimacy.
"On the same day that the Defendants filed their statement, we requested file access for our Thai clients. The access to the file was only granted to us only after the notice of dismissal was already completed and delivered. Our possible counterarguments were not heard to not jeopardize the intended termination (at least not at this stage of the procedure). This approach of the Public Prosecutor is contrary to the rule of law and reveals a lack of readiness to clarify that does justice to neither the cause nor the fate of my clients and the now unemployed 650 employees of the production facility in Thailand."
"We will demand that the Prosecutor General's Office rectify this."
