Daily paper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and broadcasters NDR and WDR said in a joint report, German public prosecutors have launched an investigation into suspected tax evasion in connection with the emissions scandal that has rocked carmaker Volkswagen. Citing a spokesman for prosecutors in Braunschweig near Volkswagen’s headquarters in Wolfsburg, they said on Tuesday the investigation focuses on five Volkswagen employees and concerns several million euros of evaded tax payments linked to rigging of CO2 emissions.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:
The diesel cars of Volkswagen subsequently proved to be much less environmentally friendly than the company pretended. However, the buyers of the cars in the Netherlands did get environmental subsidies for supposedly ‘clean’ cars, like a lower bpm (purchase tax) or a lower tax liability for lease car drivers.
So, the government has spent taxpayers’ money wrongly. Volkswagen has promised to pay it all back. How much money is involved is not known yet. That depends on new calculations of the actual CO2 emissions of the cars by the German technical inspection agency KBA.
