Former Wirecard Manager Died of Blood Poisoning in Manila: Bild

A former manager of Germany’s disgraced Wirecard AG died of blood poisoning in a hospital in Manila, Bild am Sonntag reported, citing the dead man’s mother.

Authorities in the Philippines have yet to confirm that the man, Christopher Bauer, is the former Asian executive of the payments firm who is part of an ongoing investigation into fraud. The German newspaper confirmed that it’s the same person after visiting the 44-year-old’s mother in the German town of Einhausen. She confirmed her son’s death and indicated that he passed away from natural causes.
