Strache’s German lawyer called with the Munich prosecutor’s office last Friday and lodged a written complaint against the Munich-based Sueddeutsche Zeitung, according to Der Standard.
A similar accusation of "production, dissemination and publication of the video" was reportedly filed with the Hamburg prosecution against local Der Spiegel magazine.
A video filmed in an apparent sting operation at a luxury Ibiza hotel in 2017 made headlines in Austria and Germany last month. It showed Strache discussing ways to avoid party financing rules with a woman posing as a niece of a Russian oligarch. She was later revealed to be a Bosnian student paid to entrap the leader of the right-wing Freedom Party.
