if he wants the money back he will have to prove before court that it was a loan and not a present.
It all depends on the available witnesses if there is no written agreement.
He is threatening me to report me to the Aliean amt and say that I am a criminal? Does he have any backings on this? I am very worried and it seems he keeeps threatening me... what is the worst possible scenario that he can impose on me legally when I insist on refusing to pay him the money- as in my uderstanding it was never a loan ???
He has no backing at all if there are no witnesses about your agreement.
Wait and see.
The worst thing would be a civil lawsuit with false witnesses and criminal proceedings.
However this ist not likely if there are no witnesses.
If he gets violent, be aware of the German anti-stalking law.
