Faulty ignitions: Senator says GM needs victims fund

A US lawmaker urged the Justice Department to make General Motors create a fund for victims of accidents involving faulty ignitionsA US lawmaker urged the Justice Department Monday to make General Motors create a fund for victims of accidents involving faulty ignitions, arguing that the automaker “criminally deceived” the public. Senator Richard Blumenthal sent a sharply worded letter to Attorney General Eric Holder saying the leading US automaker willingly concealed information about ignition switch defects linked to 12 deaths. He revealed that the Justice Department has launched a criminal investigation into the “flagrant illegality of GM’s concealment” — a probe which could open the door to criminal prosecution. Blumenthal expressed worry that GM may be shielded from legal responsibility for events prior to its 2009 government-assisted bankruptcy reorganization.
