News video: South Korea: Volkswagen boss questioned over emissions scandalThe man who oversees Volkswagen’s emissions certification – Detlef Stendel – has been questioned by the authorities in South Korea over the so-called dieselgate scandal. Stendel, who was summoned to Seoul from Germany by prosecutors, said he was there, “to cooperate with Korean investigators and help them find the truth”. He added: “This is very important for me.” Several VW executives in South Korea could face charges over the cheating of pollution tests by the installation of a defeat device which operated when engines were being checked. The carmaker has been banned from selling vehicles in South Korean for the moment and fined 17.8 million won (14.3 million euros) there.

At that time, Volkswagen described the ruling as “most severe” and said it would consider a legal challenge, but has since decided to try to achieve certification for the affected models in order to resume sales quickly.
