RENAULT’S PELATA QUITS FOLLOWING SPY CASE

RENAULT’S chief operating officer Patrick Pelata resigned yesterday, as the French car maker tried to put the probe into suspected industrial espionage case behind it. Renault fired three executives in January, saying its high-profile electric vehicle project had been targeted by an international spy network, but later had to admit it was tricked, the men did nothing wrong and there was no spying.
