This is a narrative account of the (disgraceful) behaviour of the board of DNWE at an AGM held in Düsseldorf in 2011. Persons named as having conducted themselves dubiously (to put it mildly) include Albert Löhr, Annette Kleinfeld and Jonas Gebauer.

It is imperative in the public sphere that it be well understood that the accusations of malgovernance, dishonesty and otherwise underhand dealing endemic at dnwe (EBEN) be supported by facts (e.g. in the form of quotes by the accused themselves) and otherwise by narrative.

In brief: The board of dnwe tried to subvert the voting process and, having failed in this subterfuge, subsequently failed to enact the resolutions lawfully passed. Professor Albert Löhr refused to transmit to members a warning by Cousin Cusanus about the bad faith of many members of the board on the grounds that this cast aspersions on their character; this is true: it did, and he did.

Cousin Cusanus assumes that the members who had endeavoured to engage in the interests of business ethics have since left the association. dnwe has refused to comment on this assertion, or produce statistics. This indicates that the true purpose of dnwe may, indeed, be the deliberate subversion of the business ethics movement. On the other hand, it may merely demonstrate that the likes of Löhr, Gebauer, Kleinfeld are too small-minded to realise the harm they have been doing to the ideal they claim to expound, and to society at large. Whichever way, their character does not commend them to any professional position.

The essence is already contained in the narrative, but the documents do provide some further insight and detail, besides, of course, being necessary because of the quasi-legal nature of the allegations ...
