VW CEO offices searched in Audi investigation

Munich prosecutors searched the offices of Volkswagen Chief Exec­utive Matthias Mueller as part of an investigation into diesel emis­sion test cheating at Audi, German weekly Bild am Sonntag said.
 
Some 100 officials searched Audi’s headquarters in Ingol­stadt, Germany, and its Neckar­sulm plant last week, as well as the Wolfsburg base of Audi’s parent Volkswagen.
 
Bild am Sonntag said prosecu­tors targeted 47 VW employees including Mueller and Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, searching person­al calendars, notebooks and even memory cards in smartphones.
 
Mueller was targeted because he is also supervisory board chairman at VW’s premium car unit Audi, Bild am Sonntag said.
 
Volkswagen was not immediate­ly available for comment.
