Officials Begin Probe

By Compiled From Wire Services

Politicians in the state where German tennis star Steffi Graf is under investigation and her father jailed for alleged tax evasion, demanded that the state finance minister reveal all he knows about the case.

Fritz Kuhn, head of the Greens party faction in the Baden-Wuerttemberg parliament, said that either finance minister Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder, a conservative Christian Democrat, “puts all the facts on the table … or we’ll have to think about an investigative committee.”

The request came after the weekly Der Spiegel magazine reported the state finance ministry failed to act on information from federal finance officials as far back as 1988 regarding the Grafs’ tax situation.
