Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Audi boss has to stay in prison for a longer time
Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, suspected of fraud and deception, will have to stay in jail for longer. A court in Munich has rejected his request for release.
The German automotive CEO is suspected of involvement with diesel fuel emissions fraud. He has temporarily been suspended and replaced by the Dutchman Bram Schot.
The Audi big boss was arrested in mid-June to prevent him from tampering with evidence or influencing witnesses. According to the court, there are strong suspicions against Stadler.
Stadler has been under fire since Audi admitted in November 2015 that Audi cars also had fraudulent software. That confession came two months after the start of the scandal at Volkswagen. Stadler all that time stayed on as the highest boss at Audi.
Local residents of the central Mexican state of Puebla have accused the German automaker Volkswagen of causing droughts near the company’s assembly plant. The company started using hail cannons to supposedly disrupt the formation of hailstones in the atmosphere, aiming to protect the newly assembled vehicles that sit in outdoor parking lots. However, the devices have reportedly reduced precipitation in the area, threatening the agricultural production of over 100,000 people: here.
