Report: VW broke consumer laws in 20 EU states

Volkswagen Group (VW) has violated consumer laws in 20 of the 28 EU countries, the European Commission told Die Welt newspaper. "That is why I think it is necessary that we get involved to coordinate on a European level," Die Welt quoted justice commissioner Vera Jourova on Monday. Almost a year ago, VW admitted it had cheated on emissions tests, but most legal cases so far were outside the EU.
