So one of the eight guys who had been charged over the diesel emissions scandal at Volkswagen – one of the 8 scapegoats in our opinion, it’s probably than the guys without a doubt responsible will never be determined – is now predicted to plead guilty to defrauding the USA on August 4th in Detroit. Oliver Schmidt changed into Volkswagen’s leader environmental engineer (that’s a laughable task title now, isn’t it?) in Michigan. What’s truly thrilling is that Schmidt tried to boost the extraordinarily stupid scandal by trying to flee us of a lower back to Germany in January. Why doesn’t the US have the treaty to extradite Germans on these items!? Well, unfortunately for Mr. Schmidt, he became nabbed with the aid of the FBI on the Miami airport before he ought to depart the united states of America. Way to make matters more exciting!Schmidt has been behind bars due to the fact that January, and now he wants to get it over with and plead guilty earlier than a judge. We don’t realize the terms of Schmidt’s plea settlement yet, and whether or not he’ll spill the beans at the seven different modern-day and previous executives that had been nabbed in America, or how lots of his former colleagues in Germany are sweating bullets as we communicate. Stay Tuned!
