German parliament criticizes Scholz and Merkel over Wirecard - draft report

FRANKFURT, June 7 (Reuters) - Germany’s finance minister Olaf Scholz was criticised by lawmakers for bungling oversight of Wirecard, according to a draft report of a public inquiry into Germany’s biggest corporate fraud.

The report, by opposition lawmakers and coming after a months long investigation, also said that Chancellor Angela Merkel was naive regarding Wirecard’s lobbying efforts.

The finance minister and chancellery weren’t immediately able to respond to requests for comment. (Reporting by John O’Donnell, Christian Kraemer, and Tom Sims; Editing by Thomas Escritt)
