This was reported by the press service of the concern.
Today it became known that the board of Volkswagen AG intends to seek compensation for the damage caused to the company by the scandal known as “dieselgate” from the former boss Martin Winterkorn and the head of Audi Rupert Stadler. Recall that both leaders denied their involvement in the scandal.
Recall that in 2015 Volkswagen was accused of falsifying the test results of diesel models intended for the US market. The deception consisted in the fact that the company’s engineers installed special software for engine control units, which automatically reduced emissions of harmful substances when a connection to the corresponding stand was detected.
During the scandal, Volkswagen was accused of fraud and forced to pay more than 32 billion euros of various compensations, penalties and fines. The main culprits in the scandal were Martin Winterkorn and Rupert Stadler.
