Renault to lodge complaint Thursday in spy case

PARIS, Jan 12 (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault RENA.PA will on Thursday lodge an official complaint related to the suspected industrial espionage case that has led to the suspension of three executives, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The carmaker had said on Tuesday following meetings with the three suspected of leaking information on its electric vehicle programme that it would file a complaint on Wednesday.

“The complaint is finalised but for timing reasons it will be lodged tomorrow during the day,” the spokeswoman said.

She added that the complaint would be lodged with the Paris prosecutor. (Reporting by Gilles Guillaume; Writing by Helen Massy-Beresford; Editing by James Regan)
