On Sunday 4 March 2018 at around 9.20 a.m. CET, Bernhard Günther, CFO of innogy SE, was attacked out of the blue by two unidentified men on a park walkway in Haan, close to Düsseldorf. He was brought to the ground and his face was burned with highly concentrated acid. The perpetrators then fled in an unknown direction. Bernhard Günther suffered extremely severe injuries. This vicious attack is suspected to have been contracted by third parties.
In order to finally solve the cowardly attack on its Executive Board member, innogy SE has offered a reward of up to EUR100,000 for information that leads to a resolution of the acid attack on Günther, to the arrest of the perpetrators, to the identification of any middle-men and in particular to the conviction of those who ordered that the attack take place.
The reward is being offered exclusively to individuals. Persons whose professional duties include prosecuting criminal activities are not eligible for the reward. Should more than one person supply information that leads to the solving of this crime, the reward will be divided proportionally, according to the relevance of the information. The reward will be allocated and distributed without possibility of recourse to legal action. If several persons provide information, the reward will be allocated under consideration of the time of submission and value of the information provided. In addition, the provisions set forth in the German Civil Code (BGB) apply. Persons who participated in the crime are not eligible to receive the reward.
