German lawmakers to grill Scholz over anti-money laundering probe days before election

German lawmakers to grill Scholz over anti-money laundering probe days before election

German lawmakers will question Finance Minister Olaf Scholz over suspected failings at the government anti-money laundering agency next Monday, only days before a federal election which his party is projected to win.
Scholz will answer questions at a special meeting of the lower house of parliament’s finance committee on Sept. 20, though it is unclear if he will take part in person or join remotely via video link, lawmakers said on Wednesday.

Opinion polls suggest Scholz has a good chance of becoming chancellor in the Sept. 26 vote, replacing Angela Merkel who is standing down after 16 years at the helm of Europe’s largest economy.
