The net widened Tuesday in the investigation into the massive emissions-cheating scandal at auto giant Volkswagen, with German prosecutors adding more suspects to their list, while France launched a probe of its own.Prosecutors in Paris said they had opened an investigation into "serious fraud" against the embattled German carmaker on Feb. 19, assigning three magistrates to head it.Serious fraud office chief Nathalie Homobono said that investigators had already established that Volkswagen had cheated "with intent".At the same time, German prosecutors said the number of suspects under their own investigation had increased from six to 17, but that no former or current board members are involved.VW, which until recently had ambitions to become the world's biggest carmaker, is battling to resolve its deepest-ever crisis sparked by revelations that it installed emissions-cheating software into 11 million diesel engines worldwide.
