NAfter the big Corona outbreak at meat producer Tönnies, North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) has the company’s liability checked. On the question of whether the company should be held liable, Laschet told the editorial network Germany (Friday): “It is currently being examined very carefully whether and which rules the company has violated and where it can be held liable.” Laschet emphasized that he sees Tönnies as responsible.
The prime minister defended his government against criticism of being late in working against the meat company. “The working conditions in the slaughterhouses were known,” Laschet told the RND. “Red-green has introduced the work contracts that have become a problem. Our health minister Karl-Josef Laumann was the only one who really pressed for a change. “However, there was no majority for a legal change, said Laschet. “You have to admit it soberly.”
