Former Audi CEO Stadler released from custody

FRANKFURT — A Munich court on Tuesday said former Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, who is being investigated for his role in Volkswagen Group’s emissions-cheating scandal, had been released from custody.

This month, Volkswagen terminated Stadler’s contract against the backdrop of a criminal investigation into whether he was involved in emissions cheating.

Munich prosecutors are investigating Stadler and another member of Audi’s senior management for suspected fraud and false advertising related to illegal emissions by its cars and manipulation of vehicle tests.

Stadler was taken into custody in mid-June by German authorities on suspicion of interfering with an emissions investigation.
