Disappeared Tengelmann billionaire: RTL with theme evening –

Jun 5, 2021

June 5, 2021 © TVNow Did ex-Tengelmann boss Karl-Erivan Haub really have a fatal accident on a ski tour in 2018 or simply went into hiding – RTL wants to get to the bottom of this question with a theme evening. In April 2018, ex-Tengelmann boss Karl-Erivan Haub disappeared on a ski tour in the Swiss Alps. He is said to have had a fatal accident there, but his body was never found. On May 14th, the Cologne District Court declared the former company director dead. Double life or tragic accidental death? In keeping with this, RTL is showing the almost 90-minute documentary “Tengelmann – The Billionaire’s Mysterious Disappearance”. On June 10th at 8.15 p.m. as part of a themed evening. The report runs immediately afterwards “Tamer Bakiner – The Experiment: This is how a person disappears without a trace”. Documentary “Tengelmann – The mysterious disappearance of the billionaire” Gradually more and more doubts arise about the accident theory of the ex-Tengelmann boss Haub. And RTL News are said to have secret documents that give evidence of a billionaire’s double life. Investigative reporters Liv von Boetticher and Sergej Maier and private investigator Tamer Bakiner also reconstructed the last 24 hours before his disappearance. They also meet investigators and eyewitnesses. Connection to Russia The documentary also explores the question of whether his business in Russia could have been the undoing of the billionaire supermarket entrepreneur. And what could a possible exit strategy have looked like? Because Haub had been in contact with Veronika E., a suspected Russian secret agent, for years. Dispute over the inheritance The journalists are also investigating with whom Karl-Erivan Haub did business in Russia. And what role does the dispute over the Tengelmann inheritance play? Is there also a connection between Karl-Erivan Haub’s disappearance and the death of his father a month earlier? The research finally shows that the billionaire’s accident is unlikely. “Tengelmann – The mysterious disappearance of the billionaire” also investigates this thesis. Tamer Bakiner wants to disappear himself Can a person just disappear at all? At least private investigator Tamer Bakiner is asking himself this question. Because immediately after the documentary film, he dares an unusual experiment. He tries to go underground. Private agents Tamer Bakiner In the 80-minute report: “Tamer Bakiner – The Experiment: This is how a person disappears without a trace” because he wants to disappear from the radar. Witness protection program, victims of stalking Frank Ahearn, among others, has his say. For a long time he was one of America’s most famous target investigators. But today he helps people go into hiding. These include people who are part of a witness protection program or victims of stalking. A German stalking victim also describes his experiences and what it means to remain undetected. RTL theme evening on June 10th RTL shows the almost 90-minute documentary “Tengelmann – The Billionaire’s Mysterious Disappearance” on Thursday, 10. June, a 8.15 p.m.. The report then runs immediately afterwards “Tamer Bakiner – The Experiment: This is how a person disappears without a trace” a 10:15 p.m.. Both programs are also on after broadcast TVNow retrievable. Most recently, the Wirecard scandal was also a topic on RTL (DIGITAL TELEVISION reported).
