The Center for Economic Criminal Matters (Zentralstelle für Wirtschaftsstrafsachen) of the German public prosecutor in Braunschweig (Staatsanwaltschaft Braunschweig) has begun an investigation of Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, the former CEO of Volkswagen AG, over the VW exhaust affair.
The focus of the investigation is the accusation of fraud related to the sale of vehicles with manipulated exhaust systems. Volkswagen AG had filed a criminal complaint with the prosecutor’s office without naming an accused.
The prosecutor’s office said the particular focus of the investigation of Dr. Winterkorn is the clarification of responsibilities/accountabilities.
