Former German Minister to Challenge EU Accords, Rundschau Says

April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Former Justice Minister Herta Daeubler-Gmelin will file a complaint in Germany’s constitutional court against the European Stability Mechanism and the region’s fiscal pact, Frankfurter Rundschau reported, citing an interview with the Social Democrat.

Both the euro area’s financial backstop and the fiscal discipline accord violate the rights of the Bundestag, the lower house of parliament, the newspaper cited him as saying.

The justice minister under former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder will file the complaint after the ratification of the ESM and the fiscal pact, scheduled for before the summer break starting in July, the newspaper said.
