With a raid, the Berlin police took action against a suspected gang of fraudsters in connection with Corona aid worth millions. On Thursday morning, 30 investigators searched ten apartments and offices in the Berlin districts of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Tempelhof-Schoeneberg and in Brandenburg, according to the police and public prosecutor. The police confiscated evidence such as business documents and storage media and also around 7.5 million euros.

The five suspected men between the ages of 37 and 75 are said to have applied for quick loans across Germany to bridge financial problems caused by the corona pandemic between February and September 2021 (Corona special programs of the development bank Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau).
