The 73-year-old is accused of tax evasion in the millions. What does he say about it in court?
Munich – The star chef Alfons Schuhbeck has expanded his confession in the process of tax evasion and also admitted computer manipulation in his restaurant “Südtiroler Stuben”. Missing invoice numbers in the cash register system are “also due to computer manipulations, for which I am ultimately responsible,” said the restaurateur today before the Munich I Regional Court. “There is no third party responsible for this.”
Schuhbeck had already made an extensive confession on Wednesday, but mainly related to his other restaurant “Orlando”. At the time, he only assumed general responsibility for the “Südtiroler Stuben” and stated that he could not remember how the manipulations had actually taken place.
The public prosecutor’s office accuses the 73-year-old of having smuggled income past the tax office with the help of a computer program, among other things. In total, there are more than 2.3 million euros in taxes that Schuhbeck is said to have evaded between 2009 and 2016 in the “Orlando” and in the “Südtiroler Stuben”. dpa
