10607 (c)) and provided contact information to the Office of the Ombudsman for Victims` Rights of the Ministry of Justice. Along with the third sub-comparison, the U.S. Department of Justice resolved a criminal case against Volkswagen AG by arguing for the offenses of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and entry of goods through false testimony; and the U.S. Customs and Border Guard administration has resolved civil fraud cases involving Volkswagen due to the illegal importation of affected vehicles. Details of these resolutions are not included on this page. While some languages of the European agreement will not cross the Atlantic due to strong US franchise legislation, other changes will likely resonate. An example: the requirements for the installation of the dealer. In two interconnected comparisons, which were approved simultaneously by the court, an injunction issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and a settlement agreement relating to a class action, Volkswagen also agreed to pay eligible consumers compensation for alleged damages suffered by consumers related to the marketing and sale of 2.0-liter vehicles equipped with shut-off devices. Volkswagen estimates that the total cost of achieving the 85 percent recall rate required for CAA`s partial comparison and simultaneous execution of the FTC`s order and class action agreement will be $10.033 billion.
In the future, according to Stackmann, only one full-service “parent boat” per group will be needed, allowing some groups to reduce or close less profitable facilities. The agreement allows for new facility formats: urban showrooms, pop-up stores, used car centers and “service factories”, which want to take an industrial approach to high-throughput repair work. A spokesman for the European company said VW was also open to other ideas that a dealer wanted to develop. A 500-page global overhaul of Volkswagen`s deal with its vast network of European dealers is changing the way VW dealers generate revenue and interact with customers and the plant. VW agreed to plead guilty to the charges and pay a $2.8 billion fine. Under the terms of the pleading agreement, which is to be reviewed and accepted by the court, VW is committed to fully cooperating with the ongoing investigation and prosecution of those responsible for these crimes by the Ministry of Justice, to be on parole for three years and to be subject to an independent company compliance monitor, who will supervise the company for at least three years. In this case, the government does not wish to be reimbursed, as “the number of identifiable victims is such that restitution becomes unenforceable” and/or “the determination of complex factual issues related to the cause or amount of losses suffered by victims would complicate or lengthen the criminal proceedings so that the need to grant reimbursement to each victim is offset by the burden of criminal proceedings”.
