A spokesperson for Dassault Aviation said, “A lot of investigation is done by many official organizations, including the French Anti-Corruption Agency.”

The spokesman said that there has been no breach of contract structure with India in the purchase of 36 aircraft. The official said Dassault Aviation reiterated that it strictly adhered to the anti-bribery proposal and national laws of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
