Audi CEO detained in diesel emissions case

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler has been detained by German authorities in connection with the probe into manipulation of diesel emissions controls in cars sold in Europe, news agency dpa reported on Monday.

Prosecutors said the arrest was justified because of the "risk of concealment of evidence".

The Munich prosecutors said Mr Stadler's arrest was not made at the behest of USA authorities.

VW's luxury subsidiary Audi has long faced suspicions that its engineers developed the software used in the scam. A former head of Audi's engine development unit is already in investigative detention.

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

As of 2015, Audi has admitted to having utilized illegal cheat devices which manipulate their car's emissions with Stadler at the helm since 2007.
