Audi’s CEO Rupert Stadler has been taken into custody as investigations continue against Volkswagen Group’s involvement in the diesel emission case. Munich prosecutors ordered his arrest over fears of evidence tampering. He is likely to be questioned on Wednesday.
What did Volkswagen do?
Volkswagen emission scandal, as it is commonly referred to, began in September 2015, when the United States Environmental Protection Agency found out that Volkswagen had rigged the software to pass the US diesel emission tests. This bust has costed VW group over USD 30 billion in callbacks and legal fees.
