The court ruled that Britain had used an “undeniable violin” to cover 60 million for the Saudis.

The future king of Saudi Arabia agreed to pay the British government up to £ 60m as part of a major arms deal with his son and other senior officials, who later sought to cover them up by calling it an “undeniable fiddle”.

In defense of one of the two accused of corruption in the arms deal, Ian Winter QC told the Southern Labor Crown Court that some money had been paid to Prince Abdullah, the ten-year-old king of Saudi Arabia.

Winter told the court that internal documents recorded that the British government and Abdullah had arranged for an “undeniable violin” to cover up the payment.

Quality control also claims that the UK government has promised to pay high-ranking Saudis until 2020, eight years after the Serious Fraud Office began investigating payments.

Winter represents 65-year-old Jeffrey Cook, along with 79-year-old John Mason, between 2007 and 2012, and was prosecuted by the Anti-Terrorism Office for endorsing ச 7.9 million in corruption scams against senior Saudis between 2007 and 2012.

According to the Anti-Terrorism Office, GPT, a British company, was paid to ensure it received lucrative deals from the Saudi military.

Cook, a former Secretary of Defense, was the director of the GPD. Mason worked for a foreign company called Simek, which was accused of bribing Saudis.

The contracts awarded to the GPT were part of a larger arms deal that began as a formal agreement between the British and Saudi governments beginning in the 1970s.

The British government decided in Winter Court in 1978 that Abdullah, then Prince, should be personally paid a large sum of money to ensure that the British won the original arms deal. He added that this was a basic requirement and without it the contract would not have been awarded to the British.

He said the UK government had decided that “it was in the public interest to enter into an agreement with Prince Abdullah in order to receive the money, given the value of the agreement”.

He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture.

“Prince Abdullah and the British government wanted a violin denial that would allow them to pay, but it would allow them to deny their involvement through a private contractor,” Winter said. In recent years GPT has acted as a private contractor.

He said UK government officials “in high office” had approved every percentage of the payments as part of a so-called “top cover” arms deal. This includes money paid to Abdullah and recently to his son Prince Mitao and other senior officials. Abdullah, who ruled Saudi Arabia for 10 years, died in 2015.

He said the UK government had facilitated the payment of £ 60m from the late 1970s to 2020, when GPT contracts expired.

The Financial Crimes Control Bureau (SFO) launched an investigation into GPT in 2012.

Winter told Judge Bryan, “Even after the trial balloon went up … the Department of Defense has begun work on creating a new system that does not include GPT payments to senior Saudis.” He said these payments were transferred by sea through the Ministry of Health.

He added that the payments would not be legally corrupt if approved by the Saudi and British governments.

The investigation is ongoing.
