WOLFSBURG, Germany -- Volkswagen AG Chairman Bernd Pischetsrieder is promising close cooperation in the investigation of bribery allegations at VW.
"We will make sure that this is completely cleared up," he said after reports that the Brunswick state prosecutor's office had received complaints from VW accusing two employees of fraud and betrayal of confidence.
VW has declined to comment further on the case. But European news media last week reported that VW's chief employee representative, Klaus Volkert, unexpectedly resigned as head of the group's works council after news reports said he may be linked to the scandal.
Sources told Automobilwoche, a sister publication to Automotive News, that there will be more resignations in the next few days.
