Ecclestone trial in Munich to begin in late April 5 February, 2014 Bernie Ecclestone German authorities are pushing full steam ahead with preparations for Bernie Ecclestone’s criminal trial. The Suddeutsche newspaper reports that the trial, following a long investigation into the Gerhard Gribkowsky bribery affair, will begin in Munich on 24 April. Authorities are reportedly expecting lengthy proceedings and so have initially reserved 26 days in court, according to Wednesday’s edition of the Munich daily. Suddeutsche Zeitung said that the proceedings will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, in order that Formula 1 Chief Executive Ecclestone’s attendance at grands prix is not affected. The trial will take a break between mid August and mid September, the report added. (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
