New Delhi, February 13 - The Indian government may
cancel a contract to buy 12 AgustaWestland helicopters if
allegations of corruption that are being investigated by Italian
prosecutors are true, Indian Defence Minister A. K. Antony said
Wednesday.
Finmeccanica CEO Giuseppe Orsi was arrested on Tuesday in
relation to a probe into the alleged payment of bribes for the
sale of the helicopters produced by AgustaWestland, which
Finmeccanica controls.
Antony added that Finmeccanica, which is controlled by the
Italian State via a 30% stake, risks being put on New Delhi's
company blacklist.
"Finmeccanica could end up on the blacklist and the
contract could be cancelled," he said after announcing he had
ordered Indian investigators to look at the case.
"We will act as soon as we have the results of our
investigation".
Three of the helicopters have already been delivered.
