Senior Partner Aziz Rahman comments in The Wall Street Journal on the SFO charging Airbus subsidiary GPT over alleged Saudi corruption



With Airbus subsidiary GPT and three individuals having been charged over alleged corruption relating to a defence contract in Saudi Arabia, The Wall Street Journal sought the opinions of Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman.

Aziz told the WSJ that the UK government deserves credit for making a decision that could have an effect on UK-Saudi relations. Previous governments had appeared unwilling to make that decision – and in 2006, the then UK government dropped a three-year investigation into alleged bribery regarding Saudi defence contracts, for economic and political reasons.

Aziz praised the current administration for having “grasped the nettle’’. The full WSJ article can be read here.
