His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Manwin Issues A Statement

 

I called this one last week but read to the end, theres an interesting angle in this

According to Feras Antoon, CEO of the Canadian Manwin branch, the sites will run without interference. He is in command of most of the Manwin Group’s 1000 employees. The investigation dealt only with Fabian Thylmann’s personal tax returns, that’s why he was arrested, said Antoon. Also for the public prosecutor of Cologne, except Thylmann, there is currently no other suspect.
The boss Thylmann is gone, but the movies are continuing. His money so far was managed by Commerzbank, now fearing for reputation, will close Thylmann’s account.
Thylmanns sex portals “YouPorn”, “PornHub”, “My Dirty Hobby” and others are independent of the arrest and remain online. Perhaps they are even as popular as never before. The headlines in the arrest were eventually something like additional advertising.

Ok no surprise there, they are throwing Fabian under the bus but did you catch the name of what appears to be Fabians successor and certainly a big cog in the manwin wheel…that’d be one Feras Antoon.  This is the same Feras Antoon that was President with Mansef when they went down for international money laundering….hmmmmmm
