The automobile watchdogs committees with two big German automobile manufacturers are a seat for an emergency session later after they were charged with infringing EU cartel rules.

Daimler and Volkswagen have yet to respond to the accusation that alongside other top German automobile companies worked together to influence the price of the emission treatment systems of diesel.

The accusation was first brought up last week Friday in a published report by the Der Spiegel magazine.

The charges are under review by German anti-trust regulators and European Union.

Any companies that is discovered to have breached European Union cartel rule and regulation will have to pay a levy that amounts to 10% of their profits.

The other automobile companies under probes are Audi, Porsche and BMW and many more.

Fall Out From Emission Scandal

The German automobile companies is also facing a fallout from the 2015 diesel car emission-rigging scandal, which broke out after Volkswagen was discovered to have scammed official tests by employing rare operating system to produce artificially smaller pollution test balance.

Volkswagen, the world’s biggest automobile producer, has confessed publicly that nearly 11 million automobile locally and internationally were all built with the device software.

Only last year, a United State court demanded that the Volkswagen automobile company should pay a fine of about $14.7bn (£12bn) compensation over a similar scandal.
