The decision is final, subject to appeal.

"We have made progress in dealing with the legal consequences of the diesel scandal in Europe"- quotes the words of Frantisek Honsa, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs," says Seznam.We achieved the same result as in the United States"The news portal report was not commented on by the Reuters news agency, either by Skoda Auto, a Czech subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, or by the VW brand spokesman or the Prague District Court, and the news agency was unable to enter contact the lawyer.
