Aus­tria to Sue Air­bus over Eurofighter Deal

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Vi­enna: Aus­tria said on Thurs­day that it will sue Euro­pean aerospace gi­ant Air­bus over a $2-bil­lion sale of Eurofighter jets that has long been plagued by al­le­ga­tions of kick­backs. “We will file a law­suit against Air­bus,” said de­fence min­istry spokesman Michael Bauer. The find­ings of the gov­ern­ment in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the 2003 deal worth $2.1 bil­lion were set to be pre­sented in Vi­enna later on Thurs­day. The min­istry ac­cused Air­bus and the Eurofigher con­sor­tium of “de­lib­er­ately mislead­ing the Aus­trian Repub­lic since 2002 on the real price, the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of de­liv­ery and its equip­ment”.
