'Rising star' tax manager arrested under embezzlement suspicions
A tax office manager in Sankt Gallen – once thought a rising star – has been arrested under suspicion of embezzlement.
The 37-year-old identified as Markus F worked at the Wartau office. He was once so highly thought of, he was promoted to head the office at the age of 25.
Now it’s thought he used his knowledge of the IT system to divert CHF 100,000 to his own bank account.
Investigations are now underway.
