Consistent with its earlier announcement, Renault has today filed a complaint against persons unknown for acts constituting organized industrial espionage, corruption, breach of trust, theft and concealment. The complaint follows the discovery of serious misconduct detrimental to the company and in particular to its strategic, technological and intellectual assets.
The complaint has been filed with the State Prosecutor of Paris, who may now call on the competent services to carry out an investigation. The matter is now in the hands of the judiciary.
To ensure that the judiciary procedure is carried out in the calmest possible conditions, Renault will not take part in any controversy and will reserve the items in its possession exclusively for the competent services responsible for the investigation.
