Former German chancellor Schroeder to sue tabloid Bild over Navalny accusation that he receives ‘shadow money’ from Putin

Germany’s former chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder, says he will sue the country's most popular newspaper, after it published an interview with Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny in which he was smeared as “Putin’s errand boy.”

Posting on his LinkedIn page, Schroeder explained that he would be taking Bild to court after Navalny claimed that he takes “shadow payments” from Russian President Vladimir Putin, without presenting any evidence. The anti-corruption activist admitted that he has no concrete proof, but said he has “no doubt.” By circulating unproven hearsay, the former chancellor believes that Bild violated his rights, and therefore feels “compelled to take legal action against the publisher.”
