Daimler says German prosecutors search premises in emissions probe

FRANKFURT, May 23 (Reuters) - German carmaker Daimler on Tuesday said the Stuttgart public prosecutor’s office would search Daimler premises as part of a fraud probe related to the possible manipulation of exhaust-gas after-treatment in diesel-engine cars.

Daimler declined in a statement to elaborate beyond saying it was cooperating with authorities.

In April, the Stuttgart-based carmaker warned that U.S. authorities had investigated diesel emissions pollution and so-called auxiliary emission control devices, which could lead to significant penalties and vehicle recalls. (Reporting by Edward Taylor; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
