BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's appeals court on Tuesday overturned acquittals in a case about the renumeration of members of the Volkswagen workers council and ordered the case go to a new court.

A regional court had last year acquitted the defendants, two former management board members and two human resources managers, who had been charged with breach of trust, the Bundesgerichtshof court in Karlsruhe said in a statement.
