At Deutsche Bank’s headquarters in Germany, an envelope containing apparently explosive powder was sent to CEO, Josef Ackermann.
Thankfully, the package was intercepted before it reached him.
Frankfurt police said the substance was more likely homemade than commercial or military grade. And they’ll examine it to find out exactly what it is.
Although security has been stepped up at Deutsche Bank’s offices around the world, employees didn’t seem too worried…
“There will always be people who think that this kind of thing would be a solution, a way to get back at someone. But as an employee, I don’t feel threatened.”
Josef Ackermann is one of the few senior managers in Germany who has bodyguards for protection. He’s one of Germany’s highest paid CEOs, earning nine million euros last year.
He’s also played a prominent role in lobbying for a private sector bailout for Greece, as Chairman of the Institute of International Finance.
He even took an interest in the Occupy protests, appearing at an event in Hamburg last month, where protesters shouted at him as he tried to give a speech.
Bottom line: As anti-capitalist protesters demonstrate around the world, Deutsche Bank CEO, Josef Ackermann, was sent an envelope containing a powder thought to be explosive.
