CEO Rupert Stadler

Former Audi Chief Executive Rupert Stadler’s request to be released from custody has been denied, the Munich court of appeal stated on Monday.

Stadler was arrested in mid-June as part of a broader investigation into emissions cheating at the premium brand, that is part of Volkswagen Group.

He was arrested on fears he would consider influencing witnesses being questioned as part of the probe into Volkswagen’s emissions scandal.

“The Chamber emphasizes that danger of obstructing justice remains. The release of the alleged from custody was therefore rejected,” the Munich court stated.

Stadler had asked to be released from custody and appealed against the arrest, the Munich prosecutor’s office informed.

The prosecutors are investigating Stadler and another member of Audi’s top management for alleged fraud and false advertising tied to unlawful pollution levels in its vehicles and manipulated vehicle tests.
