Agustawestland distances self from kickback allegations


(ANSA) – Rome, November 1 – AgustaWestland, a subsidiary of
Italian aerospace and defence contractor Finmeccanica, sought to
distance itself from any wrongdoing in an investigation over an
alleged kickback scheme on Thursday.
The company has been implicated in a 560-million-euro
alleged kickback scheme involving the sale in 2010 of 12
helicopters to the Indian government.
AgustaWestland never tried to "influence the selection or
evaluation process" and its relations with the Indian
authorities were strictly "institutional" ones, according to a
statement released by the company which it said was a response
to Indian press reports on the helicopter sales.
Finmeccanica is 30%-owned by the Italian government and
controls AgustaWestland.
