New sex charge against Munich’s ex-rectormain
Siegfried Mauser’s appeal against conviction for sexual molestation of two female academy colleagues has been disrupted by the presentation of new charge against him.
Mauser’s lawyer has dismissed the presentation of a third witness as opportunist. The state is demanding that Mauser’s original one-year sentence be trebled to three years.
The German pianist and musicologist, who is 62, was president of the Munich Hochschule from 2003 to 2014. He went on to become rector of the Salzburg Mozarteum and director of the city’s biennale until his trial in June 2016.
