Elsner taken into safe keeping in France

The former BAWAG boss Helmut Elsner, who is involved in the Austrian bank scandal, was taken into safe keeping this week in France. The public prosecutor’s office expects an early extradition to Austria. Elsner wanted to avoid this with the declaration of health problems. But it seems he is not that suffering as he declared.

The French authorities will decide if they will take him into detention pending trial or not. The Austrians fear he could use his freedom to escape. They expect to welcome Elsner in Austria the next 14 days.
