Stuttgart (dpa) - A fired Audi engineer was "sacrificed" amid the ongoing VW group diesel emissions scandal, his lawyer claimed in court on Tuesday as he contested his client‘s dismissal.

Ulrich Weiss, the former head engineer of diesel engines at Audi, is fighting his dismissal at the labour court in the southern German city of Heilbronn.

Weiss‘ lawyer, Hans-Georg Kauffeld, used the proceedings to level serious accusations against Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler.

Kauffeld quoted from a discussion between Weiss, 48, and Stadler about Weiss being placed on leave.

"Stadler stresses that this all happened under pressure from VW and the VW supervisory board," Kauffeld said, referring to the corresponding minutes.

According to Kauffeld, Weiss then said that he had been sacrificed for the board of management and supervisory board.

Stadler is said to have answered: "There is some truth in that."

Weiss was initially placed on leave following the discovery of cheating software in Audi diesel cars in November 2015. He was later fired by the VW affiliate company. Weiss considers his dismissal of February 15 to be invalid.
