FRANKFURT The United States Department of
Justice on Wednesday said six high-ranking Volkswagen employees had been indicted in connection with a
conspiracy to cheat emissions tests.

The indictments were announced as the DoJ gave details of a
broader settlement between the carmaker and U.S. authorities.

The individuals are former VW brand head of development
Hainz-Jakob Neusser; former VW head of engine development Jens
Hadler; Richard Dorenkamp, who led a team of engineers that
developed the first diesel engine designed to meet new U.S.
emissions standards; former VW quality manager Bernd Gottweis;
former environment and engineering office manager Oliver
Schmidt; and quality manager Juergen Peter.

“Faceless multinational corporations don’t commit crimes;
flesh and blood people commit crimes,” U.S. Deputy Attorney
General Sally Q Yates told a news conference in Washington.
