Former German president acquitted in corruption trial

BERLIN, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- A German court acquitted former German president Christian Wulff of charges of accepting favors Thursday, according to media reports.

The regional court in Hanover, capital of the state of Lower Saxony, said it did not see the allegations of accepting favors against Wulff as proven.

Wulff went on trial in November last year, accused of allowing film producer David Groenewold to pay for a Munich hotel booking in exchange for Wulff's support in promoting one of Groenewold's films while he was governor of Lower Saxony in 2008.

Wulff, 54, served as German president from 2010 to 2012, when he stepped down in February that year over scandals sparked by a private loan on favorable terms.
