Dieselgate : Le PDG d'Audi derrière les barreaux

18 Juin, 2018, 16:25 | Auteur: Auguste Feret
  • Le PDG du constructeur allemand Audi Rupert Stadler à Ingolstadt, le 15 mars 2018

Dans ce dossier, soit l'un des volets du "dieselgate" qui empoisonne l'automobile allemande depuis près de trois ans, il a été arrêté et écroué lundi en raison d'un "risque de dissimulation de preuves", a indiqué le parquet dans un communiqué.

"Nous confirmons que M. Stadler a été arrêté ce matin", a déclaré un porte-parole de Volkswagen, ajoutant que Stadler bénéficiait de la présomption d'innocence.

En fin de semaine dernière, Volkswagen avait été condamné à une amende d'un milliard d'euros pour triche sur l'émission diesel de ses véhicules. Le parquet avait mis en cause fin mai pour " fraude " M. Stadler ainsi qu'un autre membre du directoire.

Le scandale a éclaté en septembre 2015, après que l'agence américaine de l'environnement (EPA) eut accusé VW d'avoir équipé 11 millions de ses voitures diesel, dont environ 600.000 aux Etats-Unis, d'un logiciel capable de fausser le résultat des tests antipollution et dissimulant des émissions dépassant parfois jusqu'à 40 fois les normes autorisées. À l'origine du soupçon, la KBA (l'office fédéral allemand pour la circulation des véhicules à moteurs) a ordonné le rappel de quelques 60 000 véhicules au début du mois de juin.

Le porte-parole de Volkswagen annonce que le président du directoire d'Audi, Ruper Stadler, a été placé en garde à vue.

Cependant, "dans sa réunion de lundi, le conseil de surveillance ne pourra pas échapper" à la question d'un "nouveau départ chez Audi", estime auprès de l'AFP Ferdinand Dudenhöffer, du Center Automotive Research. Un cadre de Audi y a également été mis en examen.

L'ancien PDG de VW Martin Winterkorn, et son successeur Martin Müller, mais aussi l'actuel chef du conseil de surveillance du groupe Hans Dieter Pötsch et l'actuel président de VW Herbert Diess sont visés par des investigations.

L'action VW recule de 2,4% vers 10h20 GMT à la Bourse de Francfort, en queue de peloton de l'indice Dax (-1,31%) et deuxième plus forte baisse de l'indice paneuropéen EuroStoxx 50 (-0,97%).
