Volkswagen to claim damages from former CEO

Volkswagen will claim damages from former Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn and former Audi boss Rupert Stadler, it said on Friday, as the carmaker tries to draw a line under the diesel cheating scandal.

The group said following a far-reaching legal investigation it had concluded that Winterkorn and Stadler had breached their duty of care, adding it had found no violations by other members of the management board.
