"Fraud and false advertising. And he's the first senior Volkswagen group executive to stand trial over the affair. Let's talk to Peter Campbell Motor Industry correspondent for the Financial Times. Peter. Welcome to news. I just remind US festival what the diesel emissions scandal involved exactly. So in 2015 folks wagon was forced to admit that it had sold millions of cars all over the world that were fitted with cheating software. Now this software meant that when those cars were tested in the bar cheese for missions, they complied with the rules. But when they were out in the real world, that same software turned off those systems on the part of the cars is polluted, far higher levels that was legal off nitrogen oxide, which is something that comes out of diesel engines. In some cases in the U. S. They were 40 times over the legal limit. Now, when VW admitted this in 2015, it said, This was the work of a few engineers. There was nothing to do with top managers. But the two questions that have really never been answered about the VW case. Ah, when the most senior executives in the company knew about it, and once they did know about it, whether they actually tried to cover it up rather than coming clean about it. As you say, Mr. Stabler is the first senior executive to face trial over this. And so it's likely this trial will be the first time those two questions are really tested in court. And is that what he's accused of doing one of the questions that he personally will have to answer? Or he ran out. He which is obviously part of Volkswagen was involved in selling quite a lot of the cars both in America and Europe that had this technology in them. He will obviously be asked when he knew about it. He will be asked whether or not Hey, covered things up about it. There are other VW executives facing trial with him, including one who was involved in engine development, so you can expect probably a reasonable amount of finger pointing between them on. Obviously all of this also points to how much the wider VW group knew as well, the former VW chief executive Martin. Vintage corn is also likely to face trial over this in the future. How much has this affected the company? Up until now What it's cost him a lot of money. VW's paid more than 30 billion, mainly in the U. S overcompensation and lawsuit settlements on its paid smaller amounts out in Europe. But actually, Conversely, this hasn't really hurt the company financially a tool VW makes more than 200 Year. In revenues. 30 billion wasn't actually that much on actually has pushed it to become one of the car cos that's trying to push fastest into electric cars simply as a way to clear its name and get everyone to forget about diesel gate in the future. Yes, in a way, then it sort of forced it to change hasn't It has. Yes, VW actually has probably one of the most ambitious electric called programs of any comic a worldwide. It's spending tens of billions building lots of new electric vehicles with the ape that actually a quarter of its vehicles by later in this decade will be fully electric. Thank you very much. Peter. That was Peter Campbell, Motor industry correspondent for the Financial Times that CEO of Audi, part of the Volkswagen Group, his trial beginning today, you're listening, Tunisia. Well, I think he needs are live from the BBC in London. I'm James Menendez. Let's turn to the fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of Nagorno Cara back, which has not been going on for four days. They're going to come back is amount in the same clave in Azerbaijan run by ethnic Armenians that internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan. Nearly 100 people, including civilians have been killed in this latest flare up of violence. It seems to be spilling over outside the anklets on DH reverberating across the region. Well, today we're going to be looking at Turkey's involvement. It has never made a secret of its support for Azerbaijan. But this time there are accusations that it's actively involved today. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, Accuse Turkey of warlike rhetoric on that that had emboldened Azerbaijan to take back the gonna carry back by force declasse from polluting the key. I have noted turkeys, political declarations, which I think are inconsiderate and dangerous. Francois remains extremely concerned by the warlike messages from Turkey in the last two hours, which essentially remove any of Azerbaijan's inhibitions in re conquering Nagorno Carrabba and that we will not accept They're also claims that it is not just messages. Armenia says one of its war planes were shot down by a Turkish jet in Armenian airspace. Turkeys deny that and it's been denying persistent claims that has been helping to send Syrian opposition fighters to Azerbaijan. But the BBC's Arabic service has been speaking to one Syria man in Azerbaijan, Mohammed Abraham has been telling me what he said. I've been speaking to a Syrian civilian was being recently deployed Toby, a Border force guard for like a military facilities on the borders between Azerbaijan and Armenia. And this recruitment happened like last week, and he wasn't told that he was going toe fight. Where's he from in Syria? And how did that recruitment work? Yeah, So it happened through the free Syrian army or the free National Syrian Army, which is the army of the organization. So they have been like recruiting some people from northern Syria, especially in the village in northern Aleppo, because off the bad economic situation for the people there have been like recruiting many people, the guy told me like 2000, Syrian people. There now deployed to other by John to find alongside army. They're against Armenia on DH. Like most of the people who are deployed there, they're like civilians that they are not trained and they didn't get any training before going there Who is recruiting them? What Country or what organization is doing this recruitment? Did he say he's saying like the recruitment happened through the Syrian opposition Army on DH? It was in collaboration with the Turkish authorities. So the Turkish government, not a. Some reports have suggested private Military companies in Kentucky. In other words, Turkish mercenary groups. No, it was telling me that it happened in collaboration between the Turkish government and the opposition Syrian army because the whole thing was being facilitated for them like it was very small to move from northern Syria to Entebbe airport in southern Turkey, and then they took a flight from saw their turkey too. Istanbul airport and then from Istanbul. T took time flight from there to other by John without any like interaction, or even checking their ideas, something like that, and they recruited Syrians, all of their belongings they were like taken from them. Before getting into Turkey, so they wouldn't be like recognized by the money they have, or even clothes they have or even the phones is one Mohammed. You said they were civilians on that they had had no training. But but these air what rebel fighters though people are fighting the Syrian Government. Not all of them. When the recruitment happened. The people were told that you are going to be like guards for military points on the borders on bagged in last week, there wasn't any news about war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. So they felt it safe. And they were. They were offered, like $2000 per month..
