FRANKFURT, March 25 Munich Prosecutors said on
Tuesday that Deutsche Bank board member Stephan
Leithner is among those under investigation on suspicion of
trying to mislead a court in the lender's 12-year legal battle
with the heirs of late media mogul Leo Kirch.
The prosecutors conducted a fresh search of Deutsche Bank's
headquarters and one private home earlier on Tuesday, targeting
employees of Germany's biggest lender as well as lawyers who
represented it in the case.
Leithner is in charge of human resources, legal and
compliance matters as well as government and regulatory affairs
at the lender.
Deutsche Bank declined to comment and Leithner was not
immediately available for comment.
