Pötsch said the company is still unsure how exactly this could happen. The problems started with the U.S. imposing tougher limitations for nitrogen oxide pollutants — limitations Volkswagen “could not find a way” to meet.
So, Herr Pötsch, a “chain of errors”? Or, rather, a “chain of crimes”?
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
… Pötsch was for years the top financial officer of the Volkswagen Group, until November last year. The study therefore focuses on that period.
Until now, ex-CEO Martin Winterkorn and the incumbent marketing director Herbert Diess were the main suspects in the case. They are suspected that they have been slow in informing the financial community on the diesel scandal and thus have withheld important information from investors.
Last year it became known that Volkswagen manipulated testing with secret software, so the cars seemed much more environmentally friendly than they actually were. Worldwide eleven million Volkswagen cars ride with fraudulent software.
