Prosecutors have filed charged against former Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, who is being investigated for his role in Volkswagen Groups’ emissions-cheating scandal, the public prosecutors’ office in Munich said on Wednesday.
Stadler and three other defendants are being charged with false certification and criminal advertising practices, it said, adding that the three defendants are accused of having developed engines used by the Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche brands that had emissions cheat devices.
“Defendant Stadler is accused of having been aware of the manipulations since the end of September 2015, at the latest, but he did not prevent the sale of affected Audi and VW vehicles thereafter,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
