EADS: Arms Deals and Corruption

EADS has been accused of military and non-military corruption in South Africa, Singapore, France and Finland.[1]

In October 2012, the Munich public prosecution office investigated EADS employees on suspicion of bribery. Preciding this was the sale of Eurofighter aircraft to Austria with a business value of about € 2 billion. Raids followed in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.[2]
