Prosecutors Raid Audi Volkswagen Korea

South Korean prosecutors raided the local offices of German carmaker Volkswagen, searching for evidence to reveal that the emission results of the company's diesel cars were fabricated.

Authorities at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office revealed late Thursday that the offices of Audi Volkswagen Korea were raided on Wednesday as well as those of the firms responsible for allegedly helping the carmaker receive approval for emissions tests.

An analysis showed that there were differences between test results received by the carmaker’s Seoul office from the firm’s German headquarters and documents submitted to South Korean government officials.

Prosecutors have been investigating if Volkswagen’s diesel cars had satisfied emissions regulations and if the firm had received proper approval for its diesel cars, after the Ministry of Environment filed suits against Audi Volkswagen Korea and its managing director.
