Since Volkswagen’s “defeat device” behaviour was published in the media in September 2015, the VW Group has received constant limelight ever since. Although German prosecutors remain hopeful that the first legal rulings will be concluded at the end of the year, VW’s chairman believes this will be far from the case.

And we are not surprised!

volkswagen law firm raided

In the midst of the criminal and civil probes, Volkswagen expressed their distinct opposition to German prosecutors searching their solicitors’ firm, Jones Day.

VW said that the search was “unacceptable in every respect”.

According to USA Today, the search was conducted as a result of burning questions about whether certain members of the VW managerial board were involved in, or responsible for, the emissions scandal. The German automaker said that the search was a”“clear breach of the principles of the rule of law”, namely the code of criminal procedure. They noted that if they continue to breach these principles, they would “take all action at our disposal against these proceedings”.

In the latest turn of events, VW has indicated that it may bring legal action against a former chairman, Ferdinand Piech. This was after Mr Piech allegedly informed the supervisory board about the potential cheating of diesel emission test in March 2015.

The report that was published stated that Mr Piech had highlighted the issue with the former CEO, Martin Winterkorn, and several other members of the supervisory board.

This suspiciously led to Mr Piech’s exit as Chairman.

Former-Volkswagen CEO and other top management executives must defend lawsuit over the VW cheating emissions scandal

First published by Admin on January 13, 2017 in the following categories: Emissions News and tagged with

When former VW CEO, Martin Winterkorn, resigned following the emissions scandal in 2015, I’m sure he didn’t expect to be defending a lawsuit himself.

A U.S. District Judge has ruled that Mr Winterkorn must defend a suit that is brought by American pension fund investors. The suit alleges that VW are guilty of not warning or informing the market/investors ‘in a timely fashion’ about the emission scandal; instead leaving investors to find out about their pension funds after the scandal had been publicised and splashed across the news.

Following the publication of VW’s emissions scandal in September 2015, the lawsuit notes that VW’s market value for shares fell by $63 billion (£52 billion).
