BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Even after retiring from the ARD chairmanship, RBB director Patricia Schlesinger is still under pressure. The chairman of the main committee in the Brandenburg state parliament, Daniel Keller, calls for an immediate clarification of the allegations against the head of the public broadcaster. “Now it is necessary for the RBB to clarify the facts immediately with absolute transparency,” said the SPD parliamentary group leader of the German Press Agency.
He described Schlesinger’s withdrawal from the ARD chairmanship as a necessary step to avert further damage to public broadcasting and ARD. If it is already foreseeable that there is misconduct, the director must now also draw consequences from the RBB. The German Association of Journalists (DJV) is also pushing for complete clarification.
