"The 55-year-old executive could face charges of fraud in connection with "defeat device" software found in Audi diesel vehicles in Europe.
Evidence emerged that Audi had played a key role in developing the illegal emissions software while Stadler was CEO. A week after naming him a suspect in their investigation, German authorities swooped in after a wiretap reportedly indicated Stadler was influencing witnesses to cover up the affair. Brought immediately before a magistrate, the Audi CEO was denied bail on the grounds he might obstruct the investigation were he to remain at large."
Draining the Volkswagen swamp.
