Volkswagen Chief Executive Matthias Müller had no knowledge of the automaker’s diesel emissions cheating scandal, Germany’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper notes, pointing out a report by Jones Day, the lawfirm entrusted with investigating the scandal.

Mueller learnt about Volkswagen’s emissions cheating software application on September 18, 2015, when U.S. regulators revealed the automaker had fabricated pollution tests, Bild am Sonntag reported.

Mueller was Chief Executive of Volkswagen’s sportscar division Porsche before the Diesel scandal appeared. Mueller was raised to the position of Volkswagen Group’s Chief Executive a week in the future September 25, and tasked with turning the company around.

A spokesperson stated Volkswagen could not comment on a continuous legal investigation.
