Furious confrontation as Austrian government and Airbus go head to head over Eurofighter
Airbus has filed a submission to the Vienna Public Prosecutor in response to allegations of deception in the 2003procurement of Eurofighter combat aircraft. The submission denies all allegations made in February by the Austrian Defence Minister, Hans Peter Doskozil. Mr Doskozil argued that the costs for the offset transactions undertaken by Eurofighter were not stated separately in a proposal dated 2002, which amounted to deceit.
