Daimler case shows that the government has no interest in clearing up dieselgate - opinion
Daimler’s use of illegal software to manipulate car emissions is even more outrageous than VW’s, writes Matthias Breitinger in a commentary for Zeit Online. This is because Daimler had insisted for years that it did not cheat, and also because the government still does not want to fine the company. “This is unacceptable. The carmakers must take responsibility for their deeds, and be punished,” writes Breitinger. “The case of Daimler has shown once again that the government is not really interested in clearing up the emissions scandal.”
