Audi CEO Rupert Stadler arrested over emissions scandal

Audi CEO detained in diesel emissions case

German authorities have detained the chief executive of Volkswagen's luxury division Audi, Rupert Stadler, as part of a probe into manipulation of emissions controls.

Rupert Stadler, CEO of German vehicle producer Audi, briefs the media during the annual press conference in Ingolstadt, Germany.

The Munich prosecutor's office is reportedly working towards the investigation of 19 other suspects, identities of whom haven't been disclosed, yet.

"Audi CEO Rupert Stadler was provisionally arrested this morning", Audi said in a statement.

The move follows a search last week of Stadler's private residence, ordered by Munich prosecutors investigating the manager on suspicion of fraud and indirect improprieties with documents.

The magnitude 6.1 natural disaster struck the city of Osaka and the surrounding area Monday about 8 a.m. local time. The Japan Meteorological Agency says a quake with preliminary magnitude of 5.9 struck Monday around 8 a.m.

A spokesman for Porsche SE, the company that controls VW and Audi, said Mr Stadler's arrest would be discussed at a supervisory board meeting on Monday.

VW admitted in September 2015 to using illegal software to cheat U.S. emissions tests on diesel engines, sparking the biggest crisis in the company's history and leading to a regulatory crackdown across the auto industry.

Stadler was under investigation for malpractice in the emissions cheating scandal at Volkswagen.

Volkswagen has pleaded guilty to criminal charges in the United States and nine managers, including former CEO Martin Winterkorn, were charged there.

Last month, Audi admitted that another 60,000 A6 and A7 models with diesel engines have emission software issues.
