Removed from his position with a defamatory accusation: having subtracted 120 thousand euros of funds to bet and play online. To commit lightness was not just any employee, but a German priest, serving in a parish in the town of Ballenstedt. The bishop of Magdeburg Gerhard Feige decided to free the parish priest from his duties as a pastor in Ballenstedt, as announced by the diocese itself.
It was the parish priest himself, after being discovered, to offer his resignation. Now he also risks being indicted for fraud. As reported by the German media, the man would have spent the money subtracted from the offers of the faithful to play at an illegal online casino. "I was persuaded by crooks" the parish priest was justified. The diocese has requested the restitution of the sum removed illegally.
