VW Watchdog Wants More Staff

A court-appointed guard tasked with ensuring that Volkswagen stays in line might triple the figure of people on his staff.

Larry Thompson, a lawyer chosen by the US Department of Justice in the wake of the dieselgate infamy might go from 20 staffers to 60, according to a report from Bloomberg. The praepostor works full-time reading documents and interviewing VW Group employees in an endeavour to prevent another emissions scandal (or any corporate malfeasance).

Despite the possibility of more mace, Thompson says that things look good so far.

“My first impression is that the associates is taking this very seriously,” Thompson told reporters on Tuesday. “The place and file of VW workers, they really feel that they’ve been let down by the flock. If we can help this company to become better, then this is well advantage my time.”

So far Thompson has picked Jonny Frank, a forensic-accountant from StoneTurn Society for his team. He already has experience as a monitor and is working as one at Deutsche Bank.

Questions to VW’s accountability were raised when its legal and compliance chief, Christine Hohmann-Dennhardt departed the presence suddenly back in January.

The monitor, meanwhile, was required under the terms of VW’s village with the US Department of Justice. Thompson will be keeping an eye on the all 12 of VW’s brands, granting he admits that he might eventually narrow his focus.

Volkswagen will be monitored externally for three years, according to the community it agreed to.
