“What did Berlin know about the VW emissions manipulations?”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

The German Federal Parliament’s committee of inquiry on what the federal government knew about the car emissions scandal will have its first hearings today, writes Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). The Green and the Left groups in the Bundestag initiated the committee and have accused transport minister Alexander Dobrindt of ignoring early information on the manipulations. The groups also claim that the subsequent investigations were carried out only half-heartedly to spare the industry, according to FAZ.
