A Chinese takeover of a drone plant in northern Italy has broken Italy's armaments law, and may have also infringed 'golden power' rules on strategic companies, police sources said Thursday Finance guard tax police have cited six managers, three Italians and three Chinese, in the operation.
The company near Pordenone produces military drones, airplanes and space vehicles.
Since it supplies the Italian military, it is subject to special checks and vigilance.
Two major Chinese state-owned companies have taken a majority stake via an offshore company.
The firm has already been in the cross-hairs of Italian tax police for an alleged violation of an Iran arms embargo by selling drones to the Islamic Republic.

No, countries actually have rules about ownership of defense related companies. You think Pakistan would like India to secretly take over a Pakistani armaments company and shut it down?

Oh wait apparently in Pakistan it's "Their money they can choose to invest where they please". :suicide:

They have laws about foreign ownership. They don't just apply to stated enemies. In fact how many stated enemies does Italy actually have that such specific enemy laws would be needed to be put into place?? Who do you think the law was targeted at...just Russia or maybe Angola???

And Italian govt who approved this stake ownership didn't know about that law?

Actually if you read the article (and others) the Italian Government is saying nobody sought approval because they hid the ownership transfer behind a stack of shell companies.

Now that the government has found out about those shell companies and traced them back to China they have opened an investigation into the purchase of ALPI Aviation for violating the "Golden Rules" law about defense company ownership needing prior approval first before being transferred to a non-EU country.

Capisci??

That November 2020 article just says the virus may have been in Italy earlier as investigations around the world started generating a new timeline. It didn't say it originated there as China was asserting back in March 2020.

More smokescreens by you.

BTW Which is the current Chinese finger pointing location now...a US lab or some area in Italy? Seems you did an "oopsies" for Italy.

It didnt originate there then maybe it is brought in from US? The outbreak of covid-19 happened in China December 2019. You mean China suddenly can teleport or what? Make up your mind! :enjoy:

There aren't tens of thousands of US workers in the sweatshop factories in Lombardy/Tuscany Italy...but there are plenty of illegal Chinese smuggled in working as slave labor. :whistle:

The reality is no Italian agencies/hospitals are notified when any of these illegal workers suddenly gets sick and drops dead. It's just a hiccup in the current shift as a new illegal worker is immediately sent in to take their fallen comrade's place.

Who knows what the sweatshop will do with the body but likely another family in China will be perpetually wondering how their loved one suddenly "disappeared".

No rules broken if company is about to go bankrupt anyways people about to loose jobs if China buys the company helps the local economy , seems like a very generous offering by China

If company deals with defense or not is not a questions any company , can be bought or sold if it is up for grab by international buyers

I believe rather then have people unemployed or loose their jobs it is best to sell to interested buyers to keep jobs active
