FRANKFURT: Munich prosecutors said that Audi Chief Executive Rupert Stadler was arrested on Monday because investigators saw the risk that he might seek to suppress evidence in connection with a diesel emissions probe.

"The suspect has been seen by a judge, who has ordered him to be remanded in custody," the prosecutors' office said in a statement.

The prosecutors' office last week widened its emissions cheating probe into Volkswagen's luxury brand Audi to include Stadler among the suspects accused of fraud and false advertising.

"The arrest warrant is based on concealment of evidence," Munich prosecutors, who raided Stadler's home last week, said in a statement.

Audi confirms CEO has been arrested but cannot comment further on ongoing investigation.
