VW CEO under probe for 'Dieselgate' market manipulation:

AFP  |  Frankfurt Am Main 

German prosecutors said today they had opened a new investigation into chief executive Matthias Mueller and others over market manipulation in the wake of the carmaker's 'dieselgate' scandal.

Mueller is suspected of "knowingly delaying the release of information with financial consequences for SE", the holding company which controls the world's largest carmaker, prosecutors in the southwestern city of Stuttgart said.
