At the beginning of the 1990s, 26 affected employees filed criminal charges against Prof. Dr. med. TRIEBIG of the University of Heidelberg for "issuing incorrect health certificates" in accordance with § 288 StGB (German Criminal Code).
The public prosecutor's office in Heidelberg discontinued its investigations. Reasoning: "Insofar as it was possible to prove to the accused that he assumed incorrect facts in individual expert opinions, in some cases seriously, it must be assumed that he did not do so knowingly, but at most out of negligence, possibly caused by the large number of expert opinions he issued". And elsewhere: "Given the intelligence of the author, deliberate falsification is unlikely."
The "Berufsgenossenschaften" (Employer's Liability Insurance) are not bothered by such findings - they continue to use their proven expert who drives a Porsche.
Almost at the same time a judgment of the Social Welfare Court Gelsenkirchen: On page 5 it speaks of "numerous false statements" by the expert TRIEBIG. This is no reason for the employers' liability insurance associations (“BG”) not to continue using their proven expert.
In 1997, the Federal Minister for Labor and Social Affairs made the political decision to follow the recommendations of his "Medical Expert Council Occupational Diseases” (“ÄSVBR BK”), in which expert TRIEBIG also sat, and to put the new "BK 1317" on the “BK list”. One of his colleagues produces the "Merkblatt" of the" ÄSVB BK" for all doctors, TRIEBIG wrote the "Begutachungsempfehlungen" (recommendations) for the "BK-Report" of the GUV-System.
In 2004, the bomb exploded: "Experts lead doctors astray" was the title of the now defunct Federal Minister in his "Public Statement". The former minister (Norbert BLÜM) does not mince his words, he does not speak of organized crime, he speaks of "organized misrepresentation”.
What is fake in the "Merkblatt" of the TRIEBIG colleague in the ÄSVBR BK, can also be found in the "BK-Report" of the GUV system. There, "scientific sources are given which contain exactly the opposite of what they are supposed to prove", the former Federal Minister of Labor certifies to the occupational physician TRIEBIG.
The official "information sheet" must be replaced. In a new edition of the "BK-Report" of the GUV system on BK 1317 in 2007, again under the responsibility of TRIEBIG, there is nothing different in the sense of what was written in 1999. No reason for the Employer's Liability Insurance Association to deviate from its proven expert.
