S Korea sus­pends sale of Volk­swa­gen mod­els

The Myanmar Times - - International Business -

South Korea has banned the sale of 80 Volk­swa­gen AG mod­els and handed down a US$16 mil­lion fine in its lat­est re­sponse to the Ger­man car­maker’s emis­sion-cheat­ing scan­dal. The en­vi­ron­ment min­istry said most of the mod­els had been show­cased for sale un­til re­cently, and added that the prob­lem ve­hi­cles had fab­ri­cated doc­u­ments for emis­sions and noise-level tests. The min­istry said it was re­vok­ing the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for 80 mod­els, or a to­tal of around 83,000 ve­hi­cles.
