VW is slowly recovering from scandals that have plagued it recently, and one major step towards that end took place recently when the German automaker settled bribery claims made by the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh in the amount of 2 million euro, or $2,415,800US. The claims revolve around Helmut Schuster, former head of human resources at Skoda, and involve allegations he solicited bribes from Indian authorities to secure VW's commitment to invest in the state. The cash was paid to a company called Vashishta Wahan, which was said to be VW's Indian arm. One problem, according to the article VW doesn't have an Indian arm and hasn't made a commitment to invest in India yet. Schuster has since resigned amid the allegations and who knows where the money went, but VW has rightfully stepped up to replace the Indian state's losses.
