Hearings of EU Commissioners Bienkowska and Vella - 12 September 2016

Greens/EFA MEPs will continue to ask questions about the European Commissions responsibility in the Dieselgate scandal and demand greater support from the European Commission in providing access to documents relevant to the inquiry.

Representatives of Bosch which is one of the leading automotive suppliers that supplies Engine Control Units for diesel engines, will be heard in EMIS on Thursday, 15 September (10am to 12am, room Winston Churchill WIC100 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg).
