Anti-Corruption Report wrote an in-depth article on the levels of international co-operation involved in the Airbus investigation, which was concluded in January.
Rahman Ravelli’s Senior Partner Aziz Rahman gave detailed guidance to the author. He outlined the role of monitors in such settlements and explained the role that the French blocking statute had played in ensuring co-operation between UK, French and US agencies and in the co-ordination of their activities.
Aziz also provided information on other aspects of the case, including how the investigation was divided up by the three investigating countries and background detail on how the case had proceeded and the timing of its conclusion.
The article, “Airbus Case Marks a Milestone in International AntiCorruption Cooperation’’, also examines the Joint Investigation Team Agreement (JIT) between the UK and French investigating agency and outlines how the US Department of Justice ran its parallel investigation.
