Ex-VW CEO Winterkorn’s Trial in Diesel Case to Start Feb. 25

Oct. 15, 2020, 2:52 PM

The trial of former Volkswagen AG Chief Executive Officer Martin Winterkorn and four others accused of serious fraud linked to the diesel-rigging scandal starts on Feb. 25, a court ruled.

The former CEO and other managers were charged last year with equipping vehicles sold to customers with a so-called defeat device. A court in Braunschweig, Germany, which last month allowed the case to proceed, scheduled 133 hearing dates until January 2023.
