it Seems not, but the Dieselgate of the Volkswagen Group is being investigated by the German justice, in addition to by the american. The commission of inquiry has already begun and the other day I we reported that Martin Winterkorn would have passed through it to declare about what he knew or could know about the case. In that act, the former sends more of the Volkswagen Group said what we all expected, that is to say, that he neither knew nor saw anything.
however, in these days, have you been also another former big fish of the German conglomerate (years 1993 to 2002) and according to their words the story might be otherwise. At this point we all know Ferdinand Piech and its position within the German group. Piech has for years been the patriarch of the family Porsche and after the setback suffered by the failed acquisition of Volkswagen Group came into the company to safeguard the rights of the signing of sporting and because it has a percentage of shares in the majority in the board of directors (all is said).
however the relationship between the Piech and Winterkorn was everything but friendship, since the problems there were between the two companies never came to an understanding. Perhaps this is what they have done to Piech declare what has declared against Winterkorn. According to his version of the facts, the former CEO of the Volkswagen Group was aware of everything that was happening in each and every one of the brands of the group.
The exact words of Piech were these: “Winterkorn was aware of the problems arising from engines sold in the united States with the illegitimate software long before the outbreak of the scandal of the diesel engines in September of 2015,”. These words complicate, and much, the situation Winterkorn to the prosecutors and judicial authorities of Germany, since placed in the center of the target in terms of guilt.
The rest of the story as we know it (or so we believe), however it seems that yet there will be more crossings of accusations between the two factions of the Volkswagen Group. Take a seat and your popcorn, because this story promises.
