BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen is not doing itself any favors by offering unequal compensation for U.S. and European customers following an emissions scandal last year, a German justice ministry spokesman said on Friday.
“This unequal treatment ... cannot be in the interest of VW,” the spokesman said during a regular news conference.
On Tuesday, European Industry Commissioner Elzbieta Bienkowska demanded in a letter to VW’s chief executive that U.S. and European customers be compensated in the same way after the company’s emissions scandal.
