The Stuttgart public prosecutor has largely closed its investigations against six employees of the automotive supplier Bosch in the course of the exhaust gas fraud by Volkswagen. A spokeswoman for the prosecution announced today that an application was made to the competent district court to discontinue the proceedings. The court agreed. A suspect should therefore pay a premium.
The investigation concerned the possible manipulation of the exhaust aftertreatment of diesel vehicles of all brands from the VW Group. The investigators followed up the suspicion of aiding and abetting fraud against employees of Bosch and subsidiaries. However, the investigations are not complete: the prosecutor said that further suspects in the Bosch case will continue to be investigated.
