Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Toyota truck arm Hino halts more shipments in [emissions] data fraud scandal
subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corp. revealed fresh details of engine data falsification going back as far as 2003.

Hino had already halted shipments of medium- and large-sized trucks since the scandal concerning its emissions and fuel efficiency tests came to light in March [!].

Hello, VW!
"We deeply apologize once again for causing great concern," Hino President Satoshi Ogiso said in an online press conference.

Toyota sent Ogiso to head Hino, which became its subsidiary in 2001. It is almost certain that the parent company will be forced to take some of the responsibility for the falsification and play a role in Hino's recovery.

Next week: Yoon pardons Ogiso. Biden offers Kishida $431M inflation reduction aid.
