DUH ready to file lawsuit against Daimler
In light of the latest accusations against German carmaker Daimler of having equipped its vehicles with manipulation software for emissions tests, environment and consumer protection organisation Environmental Action Germany (DUH) is ready to file a lawsuit to withdraw the Daimler cars’ operating permit, DUH said in a press release. DUH estimates that “significantly more” than one million Daimler diesel cars could be equipped with the illegal switch-off devices that ensure emission limits are only met on the test stand. DUH head Jürgen Resch said it was “not enough” if transport minister Alexander Dobrindt “invites automotive industry representatives for a chat.” The ministry has to act on the allegations “or the DUH will take legal action.”
