Dassault rejects cm it paid middleman for Rafale deal
NEW DELHI: Dassault, the manufacturer of Rafale fighter aircraft, has rejected the cm of a French media portal that the company, along with its affiliates, paid several million euros to an alleged Indian middleman in order to bag the deal for 36 fighter jets.
In a statement here on Thursday, Dassault said the deal went through numerous checks, including by the French anti-co ption agency, and no violations were detected, adding that the company had implemented strict internal procedures to prevent co ption for the last two decades.
达索在周四的一份声明中说，该交易经过了包括法国反腐 败机构在内的无数审查，没有发现任何违规行为。该公司还说，在过去20年里，该公司执行了严格的内部程序，以防止腐 败的出现。
“Numerous controls are carried out by offi al organisations, including the French anti-co ption agency. No violations were reported, notably in the frame of the contract with India for the acquisition of 36 Rafales (in 2016),” a Dassault spokesperson said.
“The contract with India has been established on a go nmentto-go nment basis. This contract, as well as the offsets corresponding contract, meet the criteria established by these regulations and are being ex ted in full transparency between the various go nment and industrial partners,” he added.
French portal Mediapart cmed that the Enforcement Directorate did not investigate the payment Dassault and its subsidiaries made to the middleman, Sushen Gupta, despite “evidence” of him having obtained documents from the defence ministry which helped the French aircraft manufacturer clinch the Indian order for the r jets.

Modi and his team are not corrupt..However, . Sometime the enemies are within....Anyone who is anti Modi is anti India...Modi is the greatest Prime Minister since 1947
All these so called portal are generally fake news factories to destabilize countries like india.
Rafool wants to keep fire burning under Rafael even after SC junked his cms.
As usual this must have been orchestrated by Pappu just prior to ions!
Congress members were jum like monkeys with the cm without any verification, now their faces got blackened.
No wonder that Pappu was quiet despite this news item flashing across the media spectrum.
All these media houses should be investigated to check how much bribe they have received for these propaganda
And finally it turned out that Gupta was Pappu's man. And Sonia's secret agent from Augusta Westland years.
Congress depending only on fake/unconfirmed news.

It is a tight slap on faces of all oppositions of India but still they will remain Shameless.
It was paid news in France newspaper under direction of vadrakhangress to defame India and especially the central go nment. A famous saying: thief always thinks that everybody is thief and nobody at par to him.
Awake countrymen India must give befitting reply to the oppressive forces of the world.
Indian courts are useless. They favour criminals. The Centre should bypass courts and must seize the assets of the middleman. If that is not possible BJP cadres should take direct action ag inst the middleman by destroying his property or compel him to pay back the bribe.

A mischievious attempt to tarnish the Nation when the company manufacturing the Jets rejected such cms.
funny now how do you expect someone to accept they did something wrong.....this is a dead end..and sure Modi will keep quiet like a mouse as usual and will talk about some re gious sentiment to divert people attension...hmmm
I think someone is determined to destroy our defence sy em
Given the track record, India has for "kickbacks" for most armed forces modernisation imports during the UPA govt, not surprising that some of these portals/media from other countries keep putting out unverified/false news, and conspiracy of curruption. Shameless Congress, which has been steeped into all sorts of curruption/loot/kickback during their tenure, clutches on to these false news and keep demanding enquiry.
The agreement if our memory is is between two go nments -What is the role of a middlemen-
Dassault is most corrupt company in France...
One question to people saying it was a scam. If you read the price of other country deal like Qatar and Egypt. Price and unit are almost similar. Then why would anyone pay bribe.
