Rafale Deal: French NGO files Graft Plaint

Mediapart. Twitter was alive with the news.

A report in The Indian Express said the complaint seeks to know the “condition under which 36 combat aircraft produced by Dassault Aviation were sold to India in 2016” and the “choice of its Indian partner, Reliance”. Lodged at the end of October, “the complaint highlights ‘potential acts of corruption, granting of undue advantages, influence peddling, complicity of these offenses and money laundering’ by Government of France and Dassault Aviation, the maker of Rafale fighter aircraft”, the report said. Express further quoted the founder of Sherpa, William Bourdon, as telling Mediapart that “everything indicates that it is likely to be a very serious matter”, and that “the information communicated to the National Financial Prosecutor’s Office should lead to the opening of an investigation as soon as possible”.
