Anti-debt campaigners against BAE


The Serious Fraud Office is investigating allegations that a huge bribe was paid to lock the Tanzanian government into buying a military radar from BAE Systems. The World Bank said that the radar was useless and overpriced. Debt relief promised at Gleneagles was used to pay for it.

Well-placed politicians have suggested that this scandal is only the tip of the iceberg. With its large investments, perhaps Edinburgh City Council could persuade BAE to lift the lid on what's going on.
