Probe against Deutsche Bank CEO Juergen Fitschen for tax evasion, role of Anshu Jain unclear
Fitschen headed the bankŅs German operations at that time while Krause was the chief financial officer
The EU's emissions trading system to reduce CO2 emissions, sets limits on the emissions of industries and power plants and allows them to buy carbon permits for additional emissions if needed as well as to sell their surpluses.
In December, last year, a judge at the regional court in Frankfurt sentenced six men of different nationalities to jail after finding them guilty of tax evasion in emissions trade between 2009 and 2010.
Investigations at that time showed that Deutsche Bank staff had cooperated with them.
Deutsche Bank confirmed Wednesday's police raid and said it would continue to cooperate with the authorities.
In a statement, the bank said Fitschen and Krause were involved in the investigations as they signed the value added tax statement for 2009.
"The bank corrected this voluntarily a long time ago. Unlike the public prosecutor's office, Deutsche Bank is of the opinion that this correction took place in due time," the statement said.
