Former German President Charged with Corruption

Stepped down after only two years amid scandal

|

Former German President Christian Wulff has been charged with corruption in a scandal which prompted his resignation last year.

Mr Wulff, 53, stepped down in February after less than two years in the post.

He is alleged to have accepted the payment of hotel bills by a film producer in return for favours while he was premier of Lower Saxony.
