Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler was arrested on Monday in connection with parent company Volkswagen’s “dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal, with prosecutors saying they feared he might try to destroy evidence.
This comes a week after Munich prosecutors raided Stadler’s home, accusing him of fraud and falsification of documents.
Stadler is the most senior executive yet to be detained in the dieselgate crisis, which started when the VW group admitted in 2015 to installing so-called “defeat devices” in some 11 million diesels worldwide. — AFP
