The investigation into the VW diesel engine scandal continues, with more and more participants.
The technical head of the Continental project has admitted to involvement in the Volkswagen diesel engine scandal, a German prosecutor’s office told Reuters.
The individual (whose name is currently being kept secret) admitted that the company was aware of and involved in the illegal use of so-called data manipulation devices in VW diesel vehicles. The prosecutor’s office noted that as a result of a voluntary confession, this person will be treated condescendingly during sentencing.

The devices, discovered in 2015, were used to bypass an engine emissions test and caused the biggest corporate scandal in VW history.
A total of 60 people are now under investigation for aiding and abetting fraud and breach of trust, prosecutors said.
In November 2021, prosecutors expanded the circle of suspects in the Volkswagen diesel engine scandal to include former Continental executives.
