ISAAN NEWS Report from our correspondent in Austria: MARSALEK MAN IN THE TANNER MINISTRY?

Script-ready production - secret services on the cold war playground of Austria - the third man Marsalek is alive!

What was Jan Marsalek doing for war deals in Libya and looking for the support of the Austrian authorities? David Stögmüller (Greens) suspects a brigadier and a management consultant to have cooperated with Marsalek. Were they Marsalek's moles? and of course Germans from business and politics always in between!

How did Jan Marsalek get secret BVT documents?

 And why did the alleged Russian agent discuss his Libya project with Austrian officials?

The Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Infrastructure should even contribute financially with a total of 120,000 euros. In search of the mole Since the National Security Council at the end of July, Marsalek's plans for Libya have been quiet again - at least politically. The green David Stögmüller continues to dig. He believes he has found the people who lobbied for Marsalek's ideas within the Austrian government. Because in February 2018 there was an explosive meeting in Marsalek's villa (48,000 euros monthly rent which he now owes the 84 year old owner) in Munich.

 There, the former Wirecard CEO met with the German refugee coordinator K., the Austrian management consultant G. (once deputy head of cabinet in the Ministry of the Interior) and the army brigadier G. Via “Der Standard”, all three deny any proximity to Marsalek, Brigadier G. K. even advised against Marsalek, because he was "too close to the Russians." Stögmüller believes, however, that Brigadier G. and adviser G. should have had a suspiciously close relationship with Marsalek. G. may even have been Marsalek's Man within the Ministry of Defense. War games in Libya The minutes of the meeting in Marsalek's apartment are available and provide deep insights: Marsalek was planning a “border police with 15,000 men.” The EU could sell this project as a “solution to the migration crisis”. Remarkable: Even as foreign minister, Sebastian Kurz advocated EU intervention in Libya, he wanted to "close the Mediterranean route," said the ÖVP boss at the time. It is precisely with this strategy that Marsalek apparently tried to win the EU over for his militia project. 100,000 euros should come from the Ministry of Infrastructure to implement the project. According to "Der Standard", Brigadier G. pledged 20,000 euros from the Ministry of Defense.. 

The internal memo to the Nato Partners

: The bottom line for the donor: The priority for Jan Marsalek is " to close the border, preferable with a "15,000 man strong border police force" that would be compromised of former special forces from Austria, Germany, USA and also Russia. He repeated this throughout the conversation.

This could be also be used in his opinion with the national Government in Tripoli as a leverage against the power brokers in the east ( What ever east means) Closing the border can be sold to the EU as "solving the migration crisis" and could be used for the frozen funds of Libya in the EU for this purpose.

He foresees a roadmap for development of the south at a large scale. This he sees as profitable for all parties involved and also in streamlining  the Arms and Ammunitions trade to Africa. Jan Marsalek is not interested in small projects, SME development etc.!

But it should never have been implemented. The exact files are thin, said Minister Klaudia Tanner (ÖVP) in the National Security Council in July, which was boycotted by the opposition because Chancellor Kurz stayed away without excuse. The minister relied on internal statements, including by Brigadier G.

Suspicion: Treason How much can one trust in G.'s statements?

 David Stögmüller has already brought three statements of facts against the brigadier and advisor. He suspects them of corruption and treason. Stögmüller suspects that Brigadier G. could have been the man who supplied Marsalek with secret documents from the Austrian security apparatus.

 The contact between the Ministry of Defense and Marsalek should not have been broken off in the spring of 2018. Stögmüller also suspects advisor G. Because he was involved in business with Marsalek's Libyan cement factory.


Jan Marsalek always had the threads firmly in hand and still has them today.

Jan Marsalek is likely to be in Moscow, he is apparently covered by Russian secret services. At the same time he was honorary senator in the Austria-Russian friendship society. There he was courted by the country's political elite. Information and recommendations from “Jan” went to Johann Gudenus via his general secretary, as demonstrated by chat logs.

 Jan Marsalek was an honorary senator and donor to the Austria-Russian Friendship Society. Now, after the collapse of the Wirecard card house, Marsalek is apparently sitting in a property near Moscow. There he is apparently protected by Russian secret services, as the "Handelsblatt" reported this week.

Austria-Russian friendship with agents?

At least Marsalek worked with the Russian secret service, the Russian investigative journalist Roman Dobrochotov is certain. It is also certain that he was an honorary senator in the Austria-Russian Friendship Society (ORFG). The bilateral organization is made up of top-class, influential Austrian people. Harald Mahrer (ÖVP-WKÖ boss), union leader Wolfgang Katzian and Karlheinz Kopf (ÖVP) sit on the board alone. President is Richard Schenz (WKÖ Vice-Chief), Vice-President is SPÖ MP Christoph Matznetter.

 David Stögmüller, who works for the Greens in the U-Committee and in the summer weeks studying files, is amazed at the extent of the Wirecard scandal.

He demands more focus on the ORFG: “The Austria-Russian Friendship Society is the hub for Russian influence in Austria.

Here all representatives of the major parties (not only from Austria as insiders report) sit directly at the front to lobby for Russia. The question is: what does Russia want and where has the ORFG done something for Russia. There are connections with Gazprom, Güssinger, Libya and much more. "

Friendship society hub?

Stögmüller's suspicions have reasons: Florian Stermann, Secretary General of the ORFG, provided Johann Gudenus with secret information. This is shown by chat logs that were found by chance on Gudenus ‘Handy and are available to ZackZack. "Jan" is used again and again in it. So Stermann suggested to the then FPÖ club boss, among other things, a person to head “the Austrian intelligence service”. According to Stermann, the information comes directly “from Jan from BVT”. 

Even if Stermann passed on information from "Jan" to the FPÖ, he apparently also knew about the ÖVP. Johann Gudenus was also on the board of the ORFG. About his connection to Stermann, Gudenus told the Ibizia-U committee:

“I am friends with the Lord privately. And maybe you can figure out the next barbecue or that our children will meet ”.

Nothing special so!

 But does "Jan" mean Jan Marsalek? The suspicion is obvious, because it is always about Moscow and Russian interests. Did Marsalek even try to install a BVT boss who was loyal to Moscow and used the ORFG for this? The ORFG let the offer for a statement expire without comment. Vice-President Christioph Matznetter said:

“The ORFG doesn't need such things. We are currently in the process of realigning ourselves, and Mr Stermann will shortly be replaced as Secretary General. Personally, I never met Jan Marsalek. ”Short connection to Marsalek? The issue of Libya shows that the Marsalek affair is by no means a pure FPÖ affair. Marsalek wanted to set up a militia there.

At that time, the then Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz “surprisingly” flew to Libya and demanded stronger intervention - Stermann is also considered a confidante of ex-ÖVP Interior Minister Ernst Strasser. The 8.9.2020: Moscow “Versija” believes that the secret service scandal surrounding Marsalek and Wirecard is only just beginning: “We are not seeing the end, but the beginning of a great espionage story of ultimately greater importance than the NSA affair. Defector Snowden. ”And parts of Austrian politics may be in the middle of this affair.

 SOBOTKA & MARSALEK meeting (secretly) 2017 in Moscow

The thriller about ex-Wirecard CFO Jan Marsalek is richer by one facet. The "Süddeutsche Zeitung" reports that Wolfgang Sobotka is said to have met the fugitive Marsalek in 2017 in Moscow. A parliamentary question should clarify whether Sobotka has hit another explosive figure.

Vienna, Berlin July 20, 2020 | 1.9 billion fizzled out in the "black hole" Wirecard. While ex-CEO and short-term major donor Markus Braun bought himself out of custody for five million, ex-CEO Jan Marsalek is still on the run. Marsalek was initially suspected to be in the Philippines, but now the trail leads to Russia - and apparently also to Wolfgang Sobotka?

 Sobotka and Marsalek at a honor meeting

A detail in the report in the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” from the weekend was particularly explosive. In 2017, the then Interior Minister and current President of the National Council, Wolfgang Sobotka (ÖVP), is said to have met the controversial Marsalek in Moscow. Marsalek has been a member of the Austro-Russian Society of Friends for some time. Wirecard donated several thousand euros to the association every year, as reported by the "Süddeutsche Zeitung". Marsalek has even been said to have been the company's "Senator" since 2011. According to "SZ", Sobotka met Marsalek during a folklore evening organized by the society in honor of the then interior minister. The office of the President of the National Council confirmed that Marsalek was one of about two dozen guests expected.

There are numerous active and former political figures on the board of the Austrian-Russian Society of Friends. Including FPÖ Ombudsman Peter Fichtenbauer, WKO President Harald Mahrer, but also SPÖ MP Wolfgang Katzian.

Marsalek went into hiding According to the "Handelsblatt", Marsalek is said to have gone into hiding in a property west of Moscow with the help of the Russian secret service (GRU).

The Kremlin denied that they knew “absolutely nothing” about Marsalek's whereabouts. The ex-Wirecard board member is a controversial person: under the guise of a humanitarian mission in Libya, he is said to have planned to close the border in the south of the North African country with the help of a 15,000-strong militia in order to present this to the European Union as a refugee solution. According to "SZ", this should emerge from the minutes of participants.

Marsalek's possible disappearance towards Moscow is interpreted by the "SZ" as further evidence of the manager's numerous connections with Russia. In any case, the rumor mill about Wirecard and Russia is simmering. For example, that Wirecard is said to have obscured the flow of money from the Russian secret service. It is also rumored that Marsalek was a spy for the Russian secret services: he was in possession of the top secret neurotoxin Novichok.

Parliamentary question should clarify visit to Russia

 The FPÖ wants to know more about Sobotka's trips to Russia. Christian Hafenecker's parliamentary inquiry is intended to determine whether Sobotka met another explosive figure in Moscow: “We have indications that Sobotka not only met Marsalek there, but also the founder of the computer security company Kaspersky Lab, Yevgeny Kaspersky. This despite the fact that its products are repeatedly criticized for safety concerns and, for example, the USA and Great Britain banned their use by their authorities in 2017. "

Sobotka has been under pressure on various fronts for weeks. It wasn't until the weekend that U-Committee procedural judge Wolfgang Pöschl found clear words in the direction of the President of the National Council and U-Committee Chairman Sobotka. He sees "legal concerns" that Sobotka should be both chairman and informant. The opposition parties have been calling for Sobotka to withdraw since the committee began.

Conclusion: As in the Cold War, the secret services are back in Austria or have never left it, the area of the "third man" is still popular - the scandal is ready for the script.
