Masken-Skandal: Politician’s Daughter Andrea Tandler Sentenced to Over Four Years in Prison

The Landgericht München I announced this verdict on Friday. Her co-defendant business partner N. was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.

Prior to this, there was an agreement between the court and the parties involved in the proceedings. The prosecution had therefore demanded penalties at the upper end of the penalty framework promised by the court, which would have been four years and nine months for Tandler and four years for N. On the other hand, the defense lawyers had pleaded for penalties at the lower end, which would have been four years and three months for Tandler and three years and six months for N.

Tandler is the daughter of former CSU Secretary General Gerold Tandler

Tandler is the daughter of former CSU Secretary General and former Bavarian Minister of Finance, Economics, and Interior, Gerold Tandler. At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, she mediated business deals with various federal and state authorities for a Swiss mask supplier. For this, commission payments of almost 50 million euros flowed – which is legal in itself.

Both were convicted because they did not correctly declare the commissions and thereby committed a criminal offense. The total economic damage incurred was estimated by the prosecution to be a total of 7.8 million euros at the end of the trial.

Improper Declaration of Mask Commissions

In the end, through their defense attorneys, the two defendants largely admitted the allegations of tax evasion, specifically the allegations of income and business tax evasion. Among other things, they did not declare the income from the mask deals in Munich, but in Grünwald – where only about half of the business tax is due compared to the state capital. However, Munich was the “place of business management” at the time.

They have also now paid the tax damage incurred. The court had discontinued the proceedings regarding the evasion of gift tax and coronavirus subsidy fraud on Tuesday.
