Reuters quotes a person familiar with the matter as saying that German police have arrested the head of powertrain development at Volkswagen's Porsche business and he is being held on remand as he was seen as a flight risk, on 20 April. The person said that the arrest of Joerg Kerner was related to ongoing inquiries into emissions manipulation at Volkswagen, more than two years after the German carmaker admitted cheating on US exhaust tests.

German daily Bild am Sonntag earlier cited an internal memo from Porsche Chief Executive Oliver Blume to staff as saying a manager had been arrested.

Prosecutors are investigating current and former employees of Porsche, including a management board member, as part of their inquiries into emissions manipulations.
