EnBW deal[edit]

Because of the suspicion of infidelity determines the prosecution against ex-Prime Minister Mappus and Germany head of Morgan Stanley, Dirk Notheis. Also, homes were searched. The public prosecutor's office in Stuttgart opened an investigation on 11 July 2012 against Stefan Mappus, and Dirk Notheis, former head of Morgan Stanley Germany, in connection with the state's controversial purchase of a stake in utility Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg.[4] Morgan Stanley's German operations, headed by Notheis, in 2010 advised Baden-Württemberg on the purchase of a roughly 45% stake in EnBW from French state-controlled utility Électricité de France for nearly 4.7 billion euros (about $5.77 billion). Also advising was Stuttgart law firm Gleiss Lutz.

According to a study by Warth & Klein Grant Thornton, commissioned by Mappus' successor Winfried Kretschmann, the state of Baden-Württemberg overpaid at least EUR 840 million for the stake.[5]
