NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate told a Delhi court on Thursday that Christian Michel, the alleged middleman arrested in the AgustaWest-land VVIP copter scam, and other accused received 42 million euros as kickbacks in the deal.
The probe agency, in its 3,000-page supplementary chargesheet also named David Syms, Michel’s alleged business partner, and two firms owned by them Global Trade and Com-merce Ltd and Global Services FZE as accused.
In its first chargesheet filed against Michel in June 2016, the ED had alleged that Michel and others received about Rs 225 crore from AgustaWestland.
Special judge Arvind Kumar said he will decide on whether to take cognisance of the ED’s supplementary chargesheet and to summon the accused on April 6. ED’s special public prosecutors D.P. Singh and N.K. Matta told the court that British nationals Syms and Michel through their firms had received the money without undertaking any work against the receipt of such amount.
