German State Files Criminal Complaint over Missing VW File

Wednesday, 21 October 2015 05:41 AM

BERLIN (AP) — The German state of Lower Saxony has filed a criminal complaint after discovering that a file on scandal-hit Volkswagen had disappeared.

A spokeswoman for the state government says the file, which included internal government memos on the emissions scandal, was last seen on Friday, Oct. 9.

Anke Poerksen said in an email Wednesday that staff discovered the file was missing the following Monday.

Lower Saxony is a minority shareholder in Volkswagen and its governor sits on the company's supervisory board.

Poerksen said staff had been questioned but so far "no concrete results" indicating the whereabouts of the file had emerged.

Volkswagen has hired U.S. law firm Jones Day to conduct an investigation into the scandal. Separately, prosecutors in the German city of Braunschweig are investigating who was responsible.
