Happened to me also here in Germany. I was assumed to be guilty before investigations started, and after investigators (police) had found out that I had nothing to do with the crime I was charged with, I got a notice that investigations were stopped. That's all. Now my files rests in the shelves for 10 years, and I doubt that they will not have an effect if again some doubt comes up about my doings...
