Dieselgate investigations continue.
Premises in Hanover, Regensburg, Wolfsburg, Gifhorn, Berlin, Frankfurt and Nuernberg were searched by 76 Police and four prosecutors, a spokesman for the Hanover prosecutor’s office said Wednesday.
“We are investigating employees of Continental for abetting fraud and for providing false documentation,” Prosecutor Oliver Eisenhauer told Reuters. He said that seven engineers and two project leaders were among the accused. Two business heads and a compliance officer were also cooperating with the probe, he said.
The Hanover prosecutor’s office said the Hanover probe was an extension of the prior investigations against Audi and VW.
