On 30 July, Breaking News in Ireland reported that the SFO in the UK had charged the former boss of an Airbus subsidiary with corruption over work the company did for the Saudi Arabian military. Jeffrey Cook, the former MD of GPT Special Project Management, is charged over contracts awarded to the company between January 2007 and December 2012 – as well as a separate charge of misconduct in public office over commission he was paid between 2004 and 2008 while working for the MoD. Corruption charges have also been brought against John Mason, the financial officer and part-owner of GPT subcontractors Simec and Duranton, as well as against GPT itself.
