PARIS (Reuters) – Airbus (PA:AIR) announced on Saturday to be engaged in discussions with the prosecutor’s office in Munich, which could potentially result in the closure of an investigation on suspicion of corruption around a contract for the sale of combat aircraft Eurofighter to Austria in 2003.
The european aerospace giant said-in a press release he was sentenced in a separate folder, to pay 104 million euros at the end of an arbitration procedure concerning the sale of missiles to Taiwan by one of its subsidiaries in 1992.
