Multi-million euro bonuses to German car company executives are not fair given the sector's tarnished image after the emissions scandal, Chancellor Angela Merkel said.


"No I don't think this is fair. I don't know how the automotive industry is going to respond," Merkel told mass-selling Bild newspaper in an interview broadcast live online.

Merkel said it was not up to politicians to cap executive pay and bonuses.
