BERLIN, March 28 Volkswagen's
supervisory board has recommended shareholders to discharge the
carmaker's top management and the supervisory panel from
liability for actions taken last year.
"The supervisory board is expressing its faith in the entire
top management to continue to promote the comprehensive
reorientation of the group," VW said on Tuesday.
The carmaker said the recommendation to clear top executives
from responsibility for actions does not imply waiving possible
compensation claims against members of management.
