According to German media on April 3rd local time, Walter Cole, the son of the late former Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl, has filed a lawsuit against Federal Health Minister Spahn in Bonn District Court, amounting to nearly 5.5 million euros.
Walter Cole’s company participated in the bidding of FFP2 epidemic masks last spring and obtained an order to deliver one million FFP2 masks at a unit price of 4.50 euros. However, the Ministry of Health has not paid the bill so far
Walter Cole argued that the government had not complied with the contract, saying that he “does not understand why Spahn and the Ministry of Health had breached”.
A spokesman for the German Ministry of Health responded by refusing to comment on the details of the proceedings being held.
