AgustaWestland Agent Held In UAE Refuses To Join Probe

Indian investigators, who travelled to Dubai to meet a key middleman suspected of having routed payments to officials and politicians for the VVIP chopper deal, met with limited success as the latter is still refusing to join the probe.

Sources said a senior investigator interviewed Christian Michel in Dubai earlier this month, along with a representative from Dubai, to gather more information on the AgustaWestland bribery case involving the $556-million deal to supply VVIP helicopters to India.

The key middleman, who is believed to have been paid $48.6 million by the Italian company for contracts in India, has claimed that he was arrested in Dubai last year, on the personal request of the Indian government to the UAE rulers.
