Christian Michel offers assist in AgustaWestland helicopter deal probe


55-years-old Christian Michel who is a British arms dealer at the present time evicted AgustaWestland helicopter deal has offered to “assist” in the probe provided he is not arrested.

Michel offered in a letter written to PM Modi in November, he wrote to two international courts saying that the Indian government sought evidence to link Congress president Sonia Gandhi to the helicopter deal.

In his letter to Modi, Michel did not include Gandhi though he referred to the meeting between the Indian PM and his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi wherein the BJP government allegedly sought evidence against Gandhi in exchange for freeing two Italian marines who allegedly killed two fishermen off the Indian coast in 2012.

Top government sources told HT that the government wants to exhaust all legal options before considering Michel’s offer for help.
