That false statement by Opel gave the incorrect impression that one of the ASSUMPTIONS in the Pellingrino report had already been met. At that time (2 March 2011)no one had any way of knowing that this critical statement by Opel management was completely false. What is especially revealing here is that none of the accomplished milestones since then would have been necessary had that statement been true! So your observation about the subsequent milestones being accomplished is totally irrelevant. The fact that SOME, but by no means all, of the accomplishments falsely claimed by Opel management to have been done as of 2 March 2011 have been done in the twenty eight months since in no way whatsoever invalidates my basic point that Opel management lied to give a false impression that one of the things ASSUMED in the Pellingrio Report had already been already been accomplished at that time.
