American Justice Investigates possible Corruption at Airbus. The US Department of Justice is also starting a study into possible corruption in aircraft manufacturer Airbus, according to the reports on Thursday.
Earlier, prosecutors in both the United Kingdom and France decided to start a similar investigation.
Central to the investigation are incorrect transactions that would have been made by the aircraft manufacturer.
Airbus would have used intermediaries for years to obtain orders.
These intermediaries are doubted of fraud, bribery and corruption.
Also reported that the European planemaker was informed last summer by the American Justice,
and the several investigations can lead to fines of billions of euros.
In a short statement, Airbus lets you know how to cooperate with the research.
