VW steams ahead with recall, hunts for culprits in pollution scam

FRANKFURT (AFP) - German auto giant Volkswagen on Wednesday shifted up a gear in its plans to recall the millions of cars fitted with pollution-cheating software as it stepped up efforts to find the masterminds behind the scam. Following the dismissals of chief executive Martin Winterkorn and sales chief Christian Klinger in VW's deepest-ever crisis that broke 12 days ago, further heads look set to roll after the new CEO Matthias Mueller vowed to be "ruthless" in getting to the bottom of the affair. The steering committee of the carmaker's supervisory board was scheduled to meet later on Wednesday to discuss the preliminary findings of the internal investigation into a scam that has rocked the automobile sector and wiped 29 billion euros (S$46.3 billion) off VW's market capitalisation, AFP has learned.
