On Sunday morning of March 4, 2018, Innogy CFO Bernhard Günter was suddenly attacked in a park in Haan, western Germany. Knocked to the ground and showered with acid, he suffered severe injuries. The two perpetrators, however, remain unidentified.
Unable to move the case forward, the prosecutor in Wuppertal announced on September 28 that the investigation had been suspended.
In a bid to resume the proceedings, Innogy, the unit of German energy company RWE, is now offering an €80,000 reward for any clues, which may help police catch the perpetrators.
The reward is intended exclusively for private individuals, and not for those who have been professionally involved in the prosecution, says Innogy. Relevant information should be reported to the police of Dusseldorf, or any other police department, or to law firm Simmons & Simmons.
The company says it will also consider anonymous sources.
