The fact that the city of Siemens-Krueger in Germany is trying to use a media stunt as a way to get their citizens to vote against a local mayor for compensation shows just how desperate they are to win this lawsuit. They know that the citizens of this German town will vote against them in the upcoming plebiscite because they have chosen to run against an ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel. The fact that Ms. Merkel is backing the pro Merkel candidate shows just how bad the situation is for the people of Germany at the moment.
It will be interesting to see which way the city of Siemens-Krueger goes in terms of the lawsuit and who the next mayor will be. If Ms. Merkel’s government wins this lawsuit, it will definitely hurt the tourism industry in Germany because visitors will not want to visit any more cities in Germany while the dispute between the mayor and the residents of the town rages on.
The entire city council of Siemens-Krueger have been under pressure recently because they have allowed the former Mayor to appoint a second mayor without consulting them. The second mayor then tried to rig the election in his favor and the citizens of the town approved the choice of mayor by voting in the plebiscite.
This shows that there were no proper planning for the water project, no adequate studies and that the Siemens-Krueger city council are completely inept at their job. This is why any company or individual that wants to do business with this area of Germany needs to consult with a good legal representative that has experience in dealing with lawsuits such as this one.
The current mayor of Siemens-Krueger is accusing the former councilman of trying to manipulate the plebiscite so he could have enough votes to win the lawsuit.
The current mayor has made a lot of enemies along the way due to the fact that he did not listen to any of the advice that was given to him concerning the water project. In fact, the current councilman actually ignored all the recommendations made by his own advisors including the audit, environmental impact study and even a citizen’s motion that called for an in-depth study regarding the impact of the original decision to award a six-billion-euro contract to a company in Thyssen, Germany.
The reason why this lawsuit has been brought about is due to the fact that the new six-billion euro deal between Thyssen and Siemens-Krueger cannot go through unless the former municipality agrees to change their laws so that they can allow the two companies to function.
If the Wallace administration is unable to do this, then the entire deal will be canceled. The last thing that the politicians want to see happen is for there to be a major backlash against them and the entire region. That is why the lawsuit has been brought about.
There is also a chance that a case may still be filed against the mayor, but it is highly unlikely that the Wallace administration will sue them yet.
For one, they do not have enough evidence that the deals were done improperly. They would need to have evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that the deals were done with deliberate attempts to avoid paying the required amount of taxes. The opposition has also questioned the legality of the lawsuit as well as the process of the lawsuit itself.
However, with the number of lawsuits against the Wallace administration, it is probably best if the municipality gets out of the lawsuit with little to no damages.
If the damages awarded are too much for them, then they are sure to lose any chance of winning any damages from the lawsuit. In the past few years, a lot of towns have faced huge lawsuits over something that concerned the groundwater quality.
A big part of these lawsuits was related to the companies’ practices of putting additives and chemicals into the local water supplies. The lawsuits might just be a way for the town to defend itself and get some money back from the companies it owes money to, even though it has already lost money.
