Dassault Paid 1 Million Euros To Indian Middleman In Rafale Deal: Report

Rafale Deal: The Congress, addressing a press conference on the allegations, demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement on the new reveal.

New Delhi:
The 2016 deal for the sale of 36 Rafale jets to India involved a 1.1 million Euro payment made by aviation major Dassault to a middleman in India, French publication "Mediapart" has alleged in a report based on an investigation by the country's anti-corruption agency. Dassault has claimed the money was used to pay for 50 replicas of Rafale jets but has been unable to provide any document or photograph as evidence that these were delivered.
The middleman is accused of money-laundering in India in another defence deal, the portal says in the report.
"The company (Dassault) said the money was used to pay for the manufacture of 50 large replica models of Rafale jets, even though the inspectors were given no proof that these models were made," Mediapart reported.
The allegations were first uncovered by the French anti-corruption agency Agence Francaise Anticorruption (AFA) during their audit of Dassault, according to the report.
But the AFA "against all apparent logic" decided not to refer the case to prosecutors, it said.
"As they combed through the 2017 accounts, the AFA inspectors raised an eyebrow when they came across an item of expenditure costing 508,925 euros and entered under the heading 'gifts to clients'," the AFA report said.
"The sum was indeed huge for a gift. Though French law does not set out precise limits, legal precedents suggest that giving a watch or an expensive meal costing several hundred Euros can be enough to constitute corruption."
The report said to justify this "larger than usual gift" Dassault supplied the AFA with a proforma invoice dated March 30, 2017, which was supplied by an Indian company called Defsys Solutions. "This invoice, which related to 50 per cent of the total order, was for the manufacture of 50 models of the Rafale C, with a price per unit of €20,357," the AFA report said."

Defsys Solutions is run by Sushen Gupta, who is being investigated by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate in the AgustaWestland case involving kickbacks paid in India in a deal for VVIP choppers. Defsys is one of the subcontractors of Dassault in India.
Sushen Gupta was earlier arrested and granted bail in the chopper deal case.
The AFA inspectors asked Dassault for an explanation. "Why had Dassault ordered an Indian company to make models of its own aircraft at 20,000 Euros a plane? Why was this expenditure entered in the accounts as 'a gift to client'? And were these models, each one of which was supposed to be the size of a small car, really ever made?"
According to Mediapart, "Dassault was unable to provide the AFA with a single document showing that these models existed and were delivered, and not even a photograph. The inspectors this suspected that this was a bogus purchase designed to hide hidden financial transactions".
The Congress demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement on the reveal.

So they paid amount to a private contractor for some replicas but somehow it is related to the G2G Rafale deal?

It's a 8 billion dollar deal and Pakistanis expect Indians to crib about a million. At least PDF will go to bed peacefully.
Sure. You just keep patting yourself on the back pretending this deal was transparent and vedic.

LMAO these are the same Indians that lecture us on Chinese debt trap and corruption LOL When it comes to own corruption and malpractice it is all permissible and halal.

Nothing would happen, even if the amount was 1 billion us $.
India desperately wanted these jets. Modi played on their sentiments and needs.
Paid well over the top. Few hundred million may have change hands, to cement the deals, warming the palms of some Modi and RSS favourites.

What is the big deal!!!

French are notorious for bribing. Some of their high ranks including Presidents indicted for bribery crimes.

I especially love it when Hindustani cronyism is defended in the British press as "an efficient business model where relatives sitting on executive boards can make quick decisions and bypass red tape". Seriously, that's the shitt that your people push in western press regarding the simple dynastic monopolies that thrive in modern Hindustan's business culture.

Lolz @ you dumb low caste idiots who are being perpetually taken for a ride by Brahmins and their "efficiencies".


India should have invested in a dictionary in 1947 and looked up these words "democracy", "secularism", "financial transparency" and actually realised, "oh crap, no no noooo Mr Mountbatten, we don't want all of this stuff, we just want saffronistan with trishuls and Maratha power and some Brahmins in control. Best wishes. Thanks".

As the saying goes......just the tip of the iceberg.
I agree, this amount is puny/ reminds me of Al Yamama deal of British BAE systems with Saudis. where large sums of bribes were given to Saudi princes to get the Typhoon deal. former PM Cameron was forced to stop the inquiry citing National security when the Saudis protested and threatened with financial consequences if the findings were made public.

French are notorious in bribing the decision makers among customers to sell their very capable but over priced equipment.
