Head of Wirecard’s Dubai unit arrested by German prosecutor

BERLIN (GERMANY) – German prosecutors arrested the head of a Dubai-based subsidiary of insolvent payments company Wirecard. They said on Monday that this widens the circle of suspects in its fraud investigation.

The Munich prosecutor’s office said in a statement that questioning of the chief executive of Cardsystems Middle East FZ-LLC was held earlier in the day. They arrested him on the basis of a warrant it had obtained earlier.
