Former German President Christian Wulff (2nd L) and his lawyers Michel Nagel (L) and Bernd Muessig (2nd R) and and co-defendant David Groenewold (R) chat at the regional court in Hanover November 14, 2013. Wulff, who served just 20 months as president and was the man once tipped as a successor to Chancellor Angela Merkel, stood down in April 2012, when prosecutors asked parliament to lift his immunity, saying they suspected he had accepted undue privileges. Wulff rejects the charges and in April this year spurned an offer to settle the case with an out-of-court payment. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach (GERMANY - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW) less
