Two days after Alexander Schallenberg replaced Sebastian Kurz as Austria's chancellor, an arrest in the investigation against Kurz and his team is causing a stir.
Opinion poll researcher Sabine Beinschab was reportedly taken into custody Tuesday morning amid accusations she played a role in the alleged corruption. According to the Public Prosecutor's Office for Corruption, she is said to have prepared commissioned surveys and also issued bogus invoices for them.
The arrest was apparently made because of the danger of collusion: she is said to have deleted the hard drive of her computer shortly before the house search last week. According to the radio station Ö1, Beinschab's lawyer did not deny the arrest.
