The 124'000 members of the Migros new castle-Freiburg voted, that the Board of Directors of their cooperative should be discontinued. The majority – 64.5 per cent – has decided the regional princes are not to sell, such as media reports.
All the bodies of the regional cooperative and Migros-genossenschafts-Bund (MGB) had earlier accepted the resignation of Damien Piller required. The 61-Year-old has now been in operation for 23 years, President in neuchâtel-Fribourg. Him and three other members of the Board of Directors will be accused of disloyal management. Piller rejects all allegations.
A report by the Geneva lawyer Alan Hughes, who has not been published until now, and the Sunday newspaper exists, throws no good light on President Piller and the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors of neuchâtel-Fribourg emphasized that the report found no evidence of a criminal offence. But that was not the job of the experts. You have been limited "on the identification of deficiencies within the Migros group," in connection with the operations in the construction of two stores in Belfaux, and La Roche FR, in the years 2014 and 2015.
The key allegations relate to two payments of Migros à 800'000 Swiss francs, allegedly as a contribution to infrastructure costs. You went to two companies, one owned by Piller, for the other, he was in the mandate, and later adopted it. The payments increased the original project cost for the Migros to a quarter. (red)
