Because Michael Wendler responded to the arrest warrant * on his favorite platform Telegram and took a direct stand. Just a few minutes after the verdict on Tuesday (July 20), he wrote to Telegram that a statement on his part would follow shortly (all news about celebrities from NRW * on RUHR24).
Seems as if Michael Wendler followed his trial from Florida very closely, after all, it was the middle of the night for him. On Wednesday (July 21), the statement finally followed, which was probably discussed beforehand with his lawyer.
Arrest warrant against Michael Wendler: Pop singer rejects all allegations on Telegram
“I dismiss all allegations and accusations against me from the penal order from the Duisburg public prosecutor,” Michael Wendler begins his statement on Telegram *. “I did not commit the acts I was accused of. I should have allegedly helped to transfer 179 hits from me from my ex-wife Claudia Norberg as the alleged rights holder. “
However, this accusation is “absurd” because Claudia Norberg did not compose any of the songs and therefore does not have the rights to these songs. “It is for this reason that I have requested a trial on this matter myself. I am not officially withdrawing from the procedure, nor do I want to delay this procedure. “

Michael Wendler also commented in his statement on the allegation that he had emigrated to the USA especially to avoid being punished in Germany. “My emigration was completely independent of the penal order from 2019 that the public prosecutor directed against me.”
The allegations of the district court in Dinslaken that Wendler had put money aside before his bankruptcy are “unfounded”. A personal statement could not be expected from the pop singer either. Seems like he doesn’t agree to fly to Germany for the trial.
Michael Wendler: The arrest warrant is only valid for Germany – is the pop singer now expelled?
“The main hearing could have been held. My lawyer was given full legal powers. The issuance of an arrest warrant was therefore made without any reason and may only serve to create a mood and prejudice ”, Michael Wendler ends his statement.
What Michael Wendler did not take into account in his statement: The US authorities are also aware of the arrest warrant. However, this only applies if the pop singer touches German soil. If the 49-year-old is sentenced to a suspended sentence without his presence in Germany, for example, this is officially considered a criminal record.
And that’s exactly when he could lose his green card, with which Michael Wendler can legally live and work in the USA. Without his residence permit, he would have to leave his adopted home and come back to Germany. That could be the downfall for the pop singer’s career. * RUHR24 is part of the IPPEN.MEDIA editorial network.
