AIRBUS

Airbus was convicted by a UK Crown Court on 31st January 2020 for bribing airline executives around the world to buy more aircraft than their airlines could profitably fly while paying higher prices per plane than an open and fair market price would warrant.

31 January 2020

The judgement and associated statement of fact can be found here.
