The now infamous president of the Bayern Munich soccer club has granted an interview to weekly newspaper Die Zeit on his tax evasion scandal. The case comes as Switzerland says its ready to renegotiate a tax treaty.
During production of the film 'The Mia San Mia Phenomenon,' Uli Hoeness, president of Bayern Munich, spoke with DW about his life and his role at the club. And admitted that he cannot speak as freely as he used to.
After rejecting the Swiss request for Falciani's extradition in 2017, a Spanish court released him on bail. Two Catalan separatist leaders are in Geneva, seeking to avoid Spanish legal proceedings.
Uli Hoeness is expected to retake the reins at Bayern Munich on Friday. He resigned from his position as president of the German champions in March 2014 amid a tax evasion scandal, but is highly likely to be re-elected.
Uli Hoeness appears to be set to return to the post of president of Bayern Munich later this year. Hoeness left the post in 2014 after being convicted of tax evasion.
