BAE Plea Agreement Challenge Dropped

Yesterday, the Campaign Against Arms Trade (“CAAT”) and The Corner House, two British non-profits, announced (see here [1]) “with regret that they are witdrawing their application for a judicial review of the 5 February 2010 decision by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to enter into a controversial plea bargain settlement with BAE Systems and to drop ‘conspiracy to corrupt’ charges against a BAE former agent, Count Alfons Mensdorff-Pouilly.”

For more on this challenge and the BAE bribery, yet no bribery case see here [2] and here [3].

While CAAT and The Corner House have withdrawn their application for judicial review, the groups do intend to “ask questions inside BAE’s AGM on May 5th” and otherwise voice “the people’s judgment” on BAE’s corporate ethics.
