Seoul, South Korea - South Korea says it will fine Nissan's South Korean operation for manipulating emissions tests on its sports utility vehicle models.

South Korea's Environment Ministry said Monday that it will fine Nissan Korea about $28 000 and recall 814 Qashiqai vehicles sold since November 2015. It also plans to file a complaint with prosecutors against the head of Nissan's South Korean operation.

Nissan in Japan denied any wrongdoing. It said South Korean authorities' findings differed from those of the European Union, which concluded that Nissan vehicles used no illegal devices.

The Japanese company said it will assess the situation and continue to work with South Korean authorities.

The South Korean government investigated diesel cars sold in South Korea in the wake of Volkswagen's emissions scandal last year.
