In the balance sheet a million gaping hole

33 years after a nuclear Explosion has blown off the 1000-ton lid of the reactor 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a drink for children in the Ukraine are still contaminated milk. In the contaminated villages and towns around the now sealed reactor girls and boys are diagnosed up to today, more often than the average.

In this Region, the environmental organization, Green Cross focuses. For example, you funded a rolling doctor's office. "With the project "health for the future" at the Green Cross the people medically, even in remote places, where medical care is poor" is a call for donations from the 15. November 2018.

Two important nodes of the network are located in Switzerland, the umbrella organisation of Green Cross International (Geneva) and the Foundation Green Cross Switzerland (Zurich). The local offshoot is a Financial backer of the whole network important: 14 million Swiss francs in donations took Green Cross Switzerland, according to the latest annual financial statements by 2017.

However, with these statements there is something wrong.

According to house statements of the Foundation's President Martin Bäumle Switzerland gapes in the books of Green Cross a million in the hole. Bäumle, financial overseer of the city, village, national councillor and former President of the green liberal, düben of at least five million Swiss francs, the lack. By the end of 2017, the organization had been the capital of Green Cross Switzerland in the negative, he wrote on 2. October 2018 in an E-Mail to representatives of the international Green Cross network. The E-Mail on the first of the "observers", reported this newspaper.

The Agency was, therefore, no longer be able to "its short-term obligations", Bäumle. The Situation was reported "completely different" than officially. He was now in contact with creditors to resolve "the matter". Only with a successful fundraising, it is possible to reach by the end of 2018 to return to a positive capital.

weeks earlier, on 10. September, had sent Bäumle a message, in the subject line of that he "absolutely confidential," had written: You'll need to adjust the balance sheet in 2017, subsequently "substantially". And you won't be able to support according to the current state of all ongoing projects, but a part of the Support to shorten.

"Bäumle knows the Details"

The Board of Trustees of Green Cross Switzerland consists of seven members. Anyone who tries to talk with representatives, listen to again and again: "Talk to Bäumle, he knows the Details." The politicians wanted to move on Wednesday, but for today, Thursday for a Media event.

it is Clear that Bäumle clean up had begun in the autumn of 2018. At the beginning of the departure of the longtime Director of the Green Cross booth on 28.

In his message of 2. Of October was assigned to Bäumle the managing Director the responsibility for the money problems: the position of The Organisation has got worse over the years; the Director had become "in your Reporting very creative" and have tried to "maintain the facade". The Zurich public Prosecutor's office III for economic crimes, has now initiated a criminal case.

research shows that in mid-March, a second display at the office of the public Prosecutor. It was directed against the Ex-managing Director – but also against Bäumle, as a spokesman confirmed. Check now the facts of the case. Proceedings against Bäumle has not been opened.

"This is a irreparable breach of trust. Would have been faster with the information to the Public."Sander Mallien, predecessor of Martin Bäumle

The politician has some enemies in the Green-Cross-network. Not least because he is there today a tremendous abundance of power holding: Since 2013, he has served as President of Green Cross Switzerland, since 2017 as interim President of the umbrella Association of Green Cross International – and since the fall of 2018 as a managing Director ad interim of Green Cross Switzerland. At the time, Mikhail Gorbachev, a model Bäumles was entered into, and as a Board member and had accused the parliamentarians of the "attempt at a hostile Takeover". Bäumle had located, in turn, abuses on the part of Green Cross International: The organization has spent more money than taken in. "In its balance sheet, we are at zero," he had told the NZZ.

The Baden GLP-politicians Sander Mallien was a predecessor of Martin Bäumle, as President, in the case of two Swiss Green Cross organisations. He shows up today very upset about the financial hole at the Swiss Foundation: "This is a irreparable breach of trust. I as a donor want to know: What happens to my money? Would have been faster with the information to the Public and clear the air."

November means. The contaminated Pay over 50000 Patrons learned patrons so far, nothing. (Tages-Anzeiger)
