Former head of VW accused of fraud in Dieselgate scandal




(MENAFN) Former CEO of Volkswagen Martin Winterkorn and four other VW executives have been accused of serious fraud, among other things, amid the Volkswagen diesel scandal.

The Brunswick prosecuting authority accused the five executives of having committed "a majority of criminal offences in a single criminal act."

Winterkorn "is accused of a particularly serious case of fraud, a violation of the law against unfair competition as well as breach of trust".

Although he knew about the manipulations on diesel engines, Winterkorn was unable to disclose the manipulations either to authorities in Europe and the U.S. or to its customers.
