Spain's public prosecutor pushes for Volkswagen investigation-source

MADRID, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Spain’s public prosecutor has asked the country’s High Court to investigate Volkswagen and the scandal surrounding its rigging of emissions tests, a court source said.

The source confirmed reports in Spanish newspapers El Pais and El Mundo on Monday that the prosecutor was pushing for a probe, on the basis that the German carmaker could have committed fraud and alleged crimes linked to the environment.
