PARIS (Reuters) – Carmaker Fiat Chrysler <FCHA.MI> is subject of a French judicial inquiry over suspected obstruction of a French inquiry into the ‘Dieselgate’ affair, concerning devices used to cheat on tests over emissions, according to a document obtained by Reuters. Fiat declined to comment on the matter when contacted for comment. Volkswagen’s <VOWG_p.DE> diesel emissions-test cheating exposed by U.S. regulators in 2015 triggered global public outrage, dozens more investigations into test-rigging by the wider industry and a push by some lawmakers to ban diesel and eventually all combustion engines.
