Audi CEO detained in diesel emissions case

Audi CEO Arrested On Suspicion Of Fraud In Diesel Emission Scandal

In the Reuters report, Stadler had his contract extended in 2017 and was named as a suspect alongside another unnamed member of Audi's board of management.

German authorities have detained the chief executive of Volkswagen's luxury division Audi, Rupert Stadler, as part of a probe into manipulation of emissions controls.

"We confirm that Mr. Stadler was arrested this morning. The hearing to determine whether he will be remanded is ongoing", a spokesman for parent company Volkswagen said.

Last week, the prosecutors' office widened its emissions cheating probe to include Stadler among the suspects accused of fraud and false advertising. "The arrest warrant is based on concealment of evidence", Munich prosecutors, who raided Stadler's home last week, said in a statement.

As of 2015, Audi has admitted to having utilized illegal cheat devices which manipulate their car's emissions with Stadler at the helm since 2007.

The Audi probe: Audi has been accused of having sold at least 210,000 diesel-engine cars fitted with cheat software in the U.S. and Europe, starting in 2009.
