German prosecutors said Thursday they have filed fraud charges against three former board members at Audi and a retired senior employee from the automobile company over the “dieselgate” scam.

“The four defendants are accused of fraud, indirect false certification and criminal advertising,” Munich prosecutors said in a statement.

Former Audi boss Rupert Stadler had been charged separately and is due to appear in court from September 30.
