“For a number of days, some media members have been asked if they want to buy stolen documents/files which the supplier said are the medical files from Michael Schumacher,” the former world champion driver’s manager Sabine Kehm said Monday.
“We cannot yet assess if the documents are real.”
Kehm did say that the files had been stolen and that police have begun investigations. The German mass daily Bild earlier had reported the theft.
“We want to emphasise that buying such documents/files and publishing them is prohibited. Information from medical files is strictly confidential and cannot be made public,” said Lehm.
It’s unclear how the documents were stolen.
A week ago, Schumacher was transferred from the university clinic in Grenoble to Lausanne after coming out of his coma. The former driver was injured while skiing on December 29.
