Will dispose of 6-yr-old letter rogatory: S Africa to CBI

HT Correspondent

NEW DELHI, Oct. 5 -- The South African authorities have assured the CBI fast disposal of their pending letter rogatory - a court approved request for assistance in probe - in the Denel bribery case. The case was registered in 2005 on allegations that Denel had employed a middleman to secure a contract for around 1200 bunker buster anti-material rifles to India. The investigative agency is hoping that the response in a week would cross the hurdle of the injunction against the investigation that some Denel employees got from a court.Published by HT Syndication with permission from Hindustan Times.
