However, the investigator has no more powers than the committee of inquiry itself
In order to agree on Jerzy Montag as an independent investigator in the second “Maut” investigative committee of the German Bundestag, the chairman of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group in the investigative committee, Ulrich Lange:
“We welcome the agreement on Jerzy Montag as an independent investigator in the Second Committee of Inquiry. With Jerzy Montag, both a former member of parliament who knows parliamentary operations and a recognized lawyer have been appointed as investigators.
However, we also point out that the appointment of an investigator in the Second Committee of Inquiry does not offer any added value. As the Union parliamentary group has already established from the outset, the verification of the minister’s account by an investigator without his consent is not permitted.
An investigator who has no more rights and opportunities than the investigative committee itself does not clarify more and more quickly. “
