of shock. On Monday morning, the former fund manager

Tolerance of others! A property that did not possess the
killer of Jürgen Frick. He not only made Frick, but the
entire state, the judiciary, the Politestablishment and
the Princely House of the collapse of his fund company
in 2005, responsible. Since then he has led a fierce
campaign of revenge, sent hate mail and threats to many
people. 2011 showed it to the Bank Frick because of
threats and blackmail.
It was a murder with an announcement. The court
psychiatrist Christoph Burz (45) has warned two years
ago before Jürgen Hermann. On behalf of the
Liechtenstein prosecutor he created a filing reports and
discussions led to the conclusion that Hermann a "highly
narcissistic personality is" and was suffering from a

can already ask whether the judge would have had to dig
deeper," he says. He could have at least welcomed, if he
had been invited to submit comments on the new
appraisal. "But nothing like that happened."
Instead, the authorities fail a second time: On Friday

mail, even to the police. "This mail should have rung
alarm bells with the authorities," says psychiatrist

Hermann's bitter struggle has reached a new level of
escalation. "He has become more and more removed from
reality in his own world."

justice. Extortion case against Juergen Hermann, the
authorities have not even decided whether to be charged.
And after three years! Sigvard Wohlwend, family
spokesman and Bank Frick, do not submit its comments. If
the family could initiate at a later date legal action
against the authorities, he leaves.

Murdered Liechtenstein Bank Chief Had
Sued Suspect for Extortion
By Jan-Henrik Foerster and Carolyn Bandel Apr 8, 2014
The murdered chief executive officer of Bank Frick & Co.
AG had sued his alleged killer for extortion three years
ago, according to the Liechtenstein private bank.
Juergen Frick, 48, was shot yesterday in the firm’s
underground garage in the town of Balzers. The suspect,
Juergen Hermann, fled the scene and appears to have
later committed suicide, according to a police
Hermann, a fund manager who has been embroiled in a
dispute with the government and Bank Frick, used the
firm as his depositary bank, Sigvard Wohlwend, a
spokesman, said by telephone today. After the fund’s
board of directors stepped down in 2004, Hermann named
himself sole chairman, prompting investors to pull
money, Wohlwend said. The bank reported him to
regulators and the fund was liquidated in 2005, he said.
Hermann blamed the government and regulator for
destroying his company, according to a website
registered under the name Juergen Hermann of Hermann
Finance AG. He had filed lawsuits seeking recovery of
200 million Swiss francs ($226 million) from the
government and 33 million francs from Bank Frick,
according to the website. His lawyer declined to comment
when reached by telephone today.
Hermann had been “publicly hostile” to the country’s
Financial Market Authority and some of its employees,
forcing it to take security measures in consultation
with the police, according to FMA spokesman Beat
Bank Frick today named Chief Financial Officer Roland
Frick and Chief Operating Officer Edi Woegerer as
interim CEOs. Roland Frick, one of the bank’s founders,
had been responsible for risk management and financial
reporting, while Woegerer has worked at the firm since
2000, Wohlwend said.
Bank Frick, which specializes in wealth management and
investment advice, managed about 3.5 billion Swiss
francs of assets on behalf of clients at the end of
2012, according to its website. The bank’s chairman is
Mario Frick, who was prime minister of Liechtenstein
from 1993 to 2001.
The firm was previously part-owned by Bawag PSK Bank AG,
the Austrian lender that almost collapsed because of its
links with failed U.S. futures firm Refco Inc. Bawag
owned 26 percent and Refco had a 4 percent holding in
Bank Frick, according to a report by the Austrian Press
After Austria bailed out Bawag in 2006, the company sold
its stake in Bank Frick, according to a paper published
the following year on the European Commission’s website.

Police: body found in lake may be that
of Liechtenstein ex-fund manager sought in banker death
The Associated Press
August 15, 2014 03:04 AM
GENEVA - Police say a body found drifting in Lake
Constance may be that of a former Liechtenstein fund
manager suspected of fatally shooting a bank's chief
executive earlier this year.
German police say a fisherman found the body Thursday in
the lake, which Germany, Austria and Switzerland share.
It was close to where the Rhine river, which flows
through Liechtenstein, enters the lake.
Liechtenstein police say jewelry and clothing found on
the body indicate it may be that of suspected shooter
Juergen Hermann. An autopsy is scheduled Monday.
Police launched a manhunt for him in April after Bank
Frick CEO Juergen Frick was shot in a garage. They said
at the time Hermann's passport was found near the Rhine
with "handwritten notes confessing to the crime" and
indicating he committed suicide.
