Weber under investigation?

THE Germany authorities are reported to be investigating the business dealings of Willi Weber, the manager of the Schumacher Brothers. The investigation is alleged to be into suggestions that Weber has been used one of the companies to embezzle funds. The Pole Position Marketing company is now in liquidation with debts of around $4m but there are alleged to be financial irregularities with the business.

According to reports money from the company were transferred to another company when Pole Position ran into trouble.

Weber denies that he has done anything illegal.

Whatever the investigation discovers there is no doubt that the Schumacher Brothers will not be happy to be linked to such allegations and the news could lead to problems to them and their manager, who has never been slow in demonstrating to the world how much money he has made from the two racing brothers.
