Now it is getting tight for the Circus Royal and its director Oliver Skreinig (40): The Thurgau public prosecutor has brought charges against Skreinig at the Kreuzlingen district court. That reports the «St. Galler Tagblatt ». It is about violations of foreigners law as well as debt enforcement and bankruptcy crimes.
Desperate artists have repeatedly contacted BLICK in the past few weeks. They were still waiting for their fees while Skreinig had long since made their way abroad.
In addition, it now comes out: Some circus animals are currently for sale on the Internet. Among them are three Watussi cattle. In addition to ponies and camels, they were long part of the program of the Circus Royal.
This could also be a sign that Skreinig is urgently dependent on money. It is questionable whether he finds buyers and the animals are sold.
In addition, the Bern veterinary office intervenes and, according to well-informed sources, wants to move the first animals on Thursday, as the regional newspaper continues.
How bad is the Circus Royal? Is the end now approaching?
VIEW reaches Skreinig on the phone. He waves it off. “That’s because of Peter Gasser’s bankruptcy history.” That’s how he justified the charges against the Thurgau prosecutor. And adds: “It has nothing to do with me!” He doesn’t want to say more about that at the moment.
Peter Gasser was the former director of the Circus Royal and life partner of Skreinig. Gasser committed suicide in the summer of 2018 at the age of 61.
