In the course of its diesel investigation at the carmaker Daimler, the Stuttgart public prosecutor has now initiated a fine proceedings against the Group. That confirmed Daimler.
In such proceedings, it is suspected that the head of the group could have violated its supervisory duties and thus have committed an administrative offense. VW had therefore already pay one billion euros, Audi 800 million euros.
In addition, proceedings are pending against Porsche and Bosch. Now Daimler also faces a heavy fine.
