Do certain persons from the judiciary specifically supply certain small, left-oriented media with confidential information and file contents, so that they then report in a kind of “counter-deal” in such a way that an excitement, a political scandal takes place in any case? For several years now, has a group wanted to influence domestic politics with leaks from confidential preliminary investigations in such a way that the middle-class center and FPÖ politicians are deliberately damaged when the investigation becomes known – and even have to resign?
Another evidence nourishes this suspicion: In this case, it is not about the relatively insignificant Wiener Wochenblatt “Falter”, but about the renewed suspicion that highly explosive information might have come from legal circles or their environment to Florian Klenk could have been used in a report. As is well known, the dissemination in other media did massive damage to the ÖVP in 2019. It wasn’t until months later that it became clear that the whole “shredder scandal” was criminally irrelevant.
Now the eXXpress received a log of the end of the day of this “voluntary review” by the Federal Criminal Police Office at the ÖVP social media officer, who had the five printer hard drives shredded by a private company in May 2019.
The suspect at the time is quoted as follows: “On Thursday, July 18, 2019, I received a call from Dr. Klenk. He said that he urgently needed to talk to me and show me something. ” When asked what kind of topic it was about, Klenk would have said according to these minutes that he had to talk about something in the area of the activities of the ÖVP employee as “Head of Social Media”. And: he could “no longer say anything on the phone”.
30 minutes later, the ÖVP’s head of social media called back, but Klenk did not answer.
At 4:26 p.m., just an hour and two minutes after the phone call with Klenk, a “Mr. Kremsner” called the ÖVP employee with a suppressed number: It was a detective from the Federal Chancellery, he should come to his work address.
In the office building of the ÖVP, the criminal investigation officer then said that he and his two colleagues would act “on behalf of the economic and corruption prosecutor’s office”. The social media expert and the three criminalists then drove to the suspect’s home address, where a “voluntary look-up” took place.
30 minutes later, the criminalists took the ÖVP employee to their office on Wasagasse, and at 5.30 p.m. he was allowed to speak to his lawyer.
Like the extremely rapid distribution of the house search orders on October 6th, including the incriminating chats just a few hours after the raids began (6 a.m.) in the Federal Chancellery, Ministry of Finance, ÖVP headquarters and at the private addresses of Sebastian Kurz’s closest employees at two left-wing media have landed are also shown by the incidents of the so-called “shredder affair”: The suspicion that politically motivated leak actions are intended to “correct” the election results of the republic and the functioning of basic democratic structures should not be entirely unfounded .
