Although progress is reportedly being made towards settlement of claims on behalf of Volkswagen diesel consumers located in the United States including, at the choice of the consumer either to have the car bought back by Volkswagen or, alternatively "fixed" at Volkswagen's cost, plus the payment of "substantial compensation" to each affected car owner, CLEAN Foundation has contacted Volkswagen AG's management proposing a meeting to discuss a resolution of worldwide claims within the upcoming weeks.
CLEAN is supported by Global Justice Network (GJN), a renowned worldwide network of attorneys who specialize in consumer compensation claims and who's members are playing prominent roles in US litigation, and by Corpocon Legal B.V., a global operating Mass Claims Expertise firm.
CLEAN Foundation represents thousands of claimants from numerous countries in more than 14 EU countries ,China, India and many more.
CLEAN Foundation represents duped consumers at NO cost to them. This guarantees our commitment in finding a serious framework for final settlement.
Although Volkswagen, in 2015, offered its U.S. and Canadian customers a goodwill package valued at USD $1000.00 and has confirmed that acceptance of the goodwill package will not affect a consumer's right to compensation for damages, Volkswagen has, to date, not offered any compensation to its non-North American based customers. Around 580,000 affected diesel cars were sold in the U.S.A.; the balance of the affected 11 million cars were sold outside the U.S. Clean is worried that Volkswage fails to respond to the EU claims.
Pursuant to the law of the Netherlands, if a settlement agreed to by the parties through the efforts of CLEAN Foundation is approved by the Court, the settlement will apply to all affected persons unless they opt out ("WCAM" procedure). This would essentially convert an agreed settlement into a Court ordered opt-out settlement with a truly worldwide impact, providing Volkswagen "global peace" or final resolution of the huge controversy.
