Bavarian Parliamentary Commission Begins Investigation of Charges Against Auerbach

A special Bavarian Parliamentary investigating committee this week-end began hearing charges of fraud and forgery against Dr. Philip Auerbach, former head of the provincial restitution office. Wilhelm Hoelper, prosecutor, told the commission that the police have uncovered no proof that Dr. Auerbach intentionally settled false restitution claims or accepted bribes, as had been charged originally. The inquiry is expected to last several months.
