Volkswagen managers charged with overpaying employee council members and costing the company $5.6 million

German prosecutors say they have charged four current and former personnel managers at Volkswagen (VWAGY)  over the payment of allegedly excessive salaries and bonuses to members of the automaker’s influential employee council. Prosecutors in Braunschweig said Tuesday that the four — two former management board members, along with one current and one former senior manager, whom they didn’t identify by name — were charged with breach of trust.
