SEOUL， Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's environment ministry said Tuesday that it banned sales and cancelled certifications of tens of thousands of Volkswagen vehicles sold here as the German carmaker is suspected of fabricating documents on emissions tests and noise level.
Under the administrative measure taken by the ministry， 83，000 units of 80 Volkswagen models will be subject to the sales ban and the cancellation of certifications. Those vehicles were sold between 2009 and July 25 this year.
Among the total， 14 models， including A6 3.0 TDI Quattro， had already been prohibited from selling here. The remaining 66 models， such as Golf GTD BMT， were newly placed under sales ban.
The punitive measure came as the German carmaker is suspected of doctoring reports on emissions and noise level tests.
The environment ministry separately slapped 17.8 billion won (16 million U.S. dollars) in fines on the German automaker for emissions test fabrication.
However， those vehicles will not be recalled as consumers bought Volkswagen cars without recognition on faked documents， the ministry said. Owners of the vehicles will not be restricted from selling their cars or driving their vehicles.
Earlier this year， the ministry filed a complaint with the prosecution against Volkswagen for violating the clean air conservation act. Prosecutors reportedly found evidence that the German carmaker had fabricated documents， notifying the ministry of its findings.
Audi Volkswagen Korea， the local unit of the German automaker， said on its website that it was regrettable for the ministry to have taken the sternest measures， and that it will review possible responses to the ministry's decision.
THE HAGUE Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Triplet 1873 Noir Outlet , Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- The Dutch ruling parties VVD (Liberals) and PvdA (Labor) reached a deal Thursday on an adjusted new health care law and hope to have avoided a continuation of the political crisis.
The unexpected government crisis arose on Tuesday after three PvdA members of the senate voted against health insurance reforms by VVD current Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Edith Schippers.
Contrary to the situation in the Tweede Kamer, the house of representatives Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Triplet 1873 Camel Outlet , the current VVDPvdA coalition government does not have a majority in the Eerste Kamer, the senate, with 30 of the 75 seats.
Minister Schippers had reached a deal with the democrats (D66) and two Christian parties (CU, SGP) to support the new law. This would mean a majority of 38 of the 75 seats in the senate.
But with three PvdA senators voting against the law Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Triplet 1873 Gris Acheter , the narrow majority turned into a minority.
To make new or adjusted rules and laws, the Dutch government needs a majority not only in the house of representatives, but also in the senate.
"Appointments in a coalition should be fulfilled and in this case obviously something went very wrong," PM Rutte (VVD) said afterward.
The law is crucial for VVD Minister Schippers and a cancellation would probably lead to her departure.
According to several Dutch media Pas Cher Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Triplet 1873 Sable , this could mean an early end to second cabinet of Prime Minister Mark Rutte, which started on Nov. 5, 2012.
For Schippers the new health law was aimed at saving 1 billion euros (1.25 billion U.S. dollars). She hoped competition between the health care insurers would improve the quality of care and also make it cheaper.
Under the new law, from 2016 Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Bling Triplet Haute 1007252 Noir Soldes , people who can afford it would be able to choose their own doctors and healthcare providers, but people who choose a cheaper insurance will have to go to the choice of the insurers, who made agreements with doctors and healthcare providers.
According to opponents of the law, that would give too much power to the insurers.
After the failure of the law in the senate on Tuesday Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Mini 3352 Femme Camel Outlet , the crisis talks started and continued on Wednesday and Thursday.
Late on Thursday, Rutte sent a letter to the parliament in which he explained a new deal between the two ruling parties.
In the letter Rutte said he is willing to adjust the law, based on two key points: to better ensure the existing freedom of choice among patients for doctors and healthcare providers and by achieving a better balance of power between the insured and health insurers.
Rutte said he hopes the adjustments will be enough for the three PvdA "dissidents" in the senate to vote in favor this time. The government will now resubmit the bill for approval by the house of representatives and the senate.
A majority in the house of representatives will not be a problem once again for this adjusted health care law. However, the leaders of the opposition parties D66 (Democrats) Bottes Ugg Bailey Button Mini 3352 Femme Noir France , CU and SGP (Christian Parties) already stated after negotiations Thursday that they do not yet agree with the new deal.
This could mean the law would not get a majority again in the senate, even if the three PvdA senators vote in favor this time.
Soon after Rutte's letter was sent, a debate started late Thursday in the parliament, on the situation Bottes Ugg Classic Cardy Sweater Haute 5819 Gris Acheter , the letter, and the adjusted health care law. The Dutch politicians may work night shifts just before the Christmas break.
BEIJING, April 12 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday warned India it would take further measures to safeguard its territorial sovereignty and national security following offensive remarks made by the Dalai Lama while he was visiting a disputed zone in the east part of the China-India border area.
According to media reports, an Indian official also repeatedly made inappropriate comments regarding China and the border dispute.
These recent actions indicate that the Dalai Lama's trip has gone beyond the so-called "religious activities" as claimed by India Bottes Ugg Classic Cardy Sweater Haute 5819 Noir Moins Cher , Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a routine press conference.
