It remains-the former Volkswagen boss Martin Winterkorn will not be published in the Braunschweig Stadthalle in the large fraud process. The separated procedure against the ex-corporation boss can only be conducted separately, said a spokesman for the regional court of the German Press Agency. According to him, it is not possible to return the complex to the ongoing procedure. A start of the negotiation against Winterkorn is not foreseeable at all.

Court in Critique

The absence of the former CEO had clearly dominated the first trial days in September 2021. Both the defenders of the other accused and the public prosecutor's office sharply criticized the court's procedure. "The message of sitting here without Mr. Winterkorn is a disaster," said a lawyer at the time. "The responsibility for your own actions looks different," commented a colleague.

When the diesel scandal opened in autumn 2015, Winterkorn resigned. However, he assured that he knew nothing about illegal actions before the manipulations became known. In a farewell message, he announced that "everything was on the table - as quickly, thoroughly and transparently as possible". In the Bundestag's committee of inquiry, he later asked: "How could something like that happen?" The fraud, which is one of the largest industrial scandals in German history, has long since cost VW more than 30 billion euros.

process runs

in the Braunschweig process, however, no breakthrough can be seen even after more than 40 days of negotiation. Corona -related failures and countless applications kept causing interruptions. It is also difficult that a large part of the witnesses, which were largely considered to be significantly, recently made use of their right to refuse to testify. There were only second -hand statements because only individual law enforcement officers report from important own witnesses. A development engineer is to be heard this Thursday.
