German President Wulff’s Legal Immunity Ends Tomorrow, DPA Says

Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) -- German President Christian Wulff’s legal immunity will be lifted tomorrow, allowing prosecutors to investigate alleged abuse of office, the Deutsche Presse Agentur reported, citing the spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in Hanover, Hans-Juergen Lendeckel.

Wulff announced his resignation today after prosecutors said they wanted to investigate allegations he accepted illicit favors during his tenure as governor of Lower Saxony before he became head of state. Wulff said he had done nothing illegal and was convinced any legal action would lead to a “complete discharge.”
