The prosecution had filed charges in the past week for serious infidelity against Schostok. He should have known about inadmissible salary bonuses for top officials, without stopping these payments.

Overall, it is about unduly paid salary increases of about 64,000 euros for the chief of office of the Lord Mayor and for the former fire chief. Schostok denies having known about inadmissibility of the payments.

“I was and am not aware of any misconduct, but the decision is now up to the competent court,” said Schostok on Tuesday. About the date of a new election, the city council will decide soon.

First Schostok wanted to remain in the office, despite charges. All relevant parties in the city council, called for his withdrawal. “Regardless of the legally open question of personal guilt or innocence, a situation has now arisen in which the governing political forces of the Council are plainly failing to support me,” Schostok said, explaining his decision. In the absence of political confidence, retiring is possible for special reasons.
