MANILA, Philippines — Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Thursday confirmed that the Christopher Bauer who died last July 27, in Parañaque City, was the same person sought by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in connection with the multi-billion dollar fraud at Wirecard.

“Per official documents submitted to the NBI, Christopher Reinhard Bauer, a German national/businessman, died on July 27, 2020, in a Paranaque hospital due to natural causes. He was subsequently cremated,” Guevarra said.


“He was the same person summoned by the NBI in connection with the Wirecard fraud investigation,” he added.

The DOJ chief said Bauer, a former Wirecard executive, was among those being eyed by the NBI and the Anti-Money Laundering Council to be investigated in connection with the Wirecard fund mess.
