Death of German national linked to Wirecard fraud confirmed

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Thursday confirmed that the Christopher Bauer who died in a Parañaque hospital on July 27 was the same man being sought by the NBI for investigation, and in connection with the multi-billion-dollar fraud at Wirecard. 

“Per official documents submitted to the NBI [National Bureau of Investigation], Christopher Reinhard Bauer, a German national/businessman, died on July 27, 2020, in a Parañaque hospital due to natural causes. He was subsequently cremated,” Guevarra said in a text message.

“He was the same person summoned by the NBI in connection with the Wirecard fraud investigation.”

Guevarra had earlier said Bauer, a former Wirecard executive, was among those being eyed by the NBI and the Anti-Money Laundering Council for investigation in connection with the Wirecard fund mess.
