Try this one, from zee germans

Its too bad, looks like a sick jump - tight little landing area

Sounds like it might be another case of put stuff on youtube then got busted for it.

Cliff notes from what the article says / claims:

He jumped in a National Park. According to (German?) law a wingsuit is classified as an aircraft.
Taking off or landing an with an aircraft inside a National Park is illegal.
The video was seen and could lead to a fine up to €2500. They may consider reducing the fine, if the video is deleted.

He has over 200 people following him on his athlete page, so he must be a big deal
