no commission was supposed to be paid by the manufacturing company to any defence agent to secure the deal But as it turned out in both cases the middlemen had received commissions The Swedish government investigated the Bofors case and the Italian government the VIP choppers case What was more damaging was the suspicion that the trail of the commission money led to Indian politicians In the Bofors case Rs 64 crore (at the then prevalent prices) supposedly exchanged hands In the AgustaWestland case the bribe money is supposed to be more than Rs 200 crore File image of Sonia Gandhi PTI Although middlemen who received money in both the cases were identified and legal evidence against them was established no clear case could be made out against the political beneficiaries in both the cases The political battles therefore were fought on the basis of conjecture and speculation Incidentally both the deals were signed during the Congress regimes and the main political targets in both the cases were members of the Nehru-Gandhi family the political dynasts lording over the party since Independence: Rajiv Gandhi in the gun deal and Sonia Gandhi in the chopper deal Rajiv had a more direct role in the Bofors deal: he was the prime minister and also the defence minister when the Bofors agreement was signed; Sonia has never been in government; but as the Congress president she was the ‘driving force’ behind the Congress-led government in 2010 when the helicopter deal was inked But there is a crucial difference between the way Rajiv-led Congress handled the Bofors case and Sonia-led Congress dealt with the AgustaWestland case when the scam broke out On 16April 1987 barely a year after the gun deal was signed Swedish National Radio reported that Bofors had paid bribes to secure the Howitzer contract The Howitzer deal was swung by the AE Services of Ottavio Quattrocchi an Italian defence dealer Sten Lindstrom the then head of the Swedish police and the main whistleblower in the case (he secretly supplied information and documents to Chitra Subramanyam and N Ram of TheHindu) said that although there was no proof that Rajiv received any pay-off there was enough evidence that he was responsible for the cover-up to protect Quattrocchi It was common knowledge that Quattrocchi and his wife had unfettered access to the prime minister’s house (thanks to the Italian connection with Sonia Gandhi nee Maino) It was easy to surmise that Quattrocchi used his proximity tothe Gandhi family to swing the deal Swedish investigations revealed that his AE Services entered an agreement with the AB Bofors on 15November 1985 to clinch the Howitzer deal with the stipulation that AES was entitled to an attractive commission if the contract was signed before 31March 1986?
