The case brought by Portuguese company Beverley Securities (BSI) against Eurocopter for alleged non-payment of commission on alleged defence sales to the apartheid regime in South Africa is likely to be heard in court in September (Flight International, 1-7 May). At a hearing before the commercial court at Bobigny, near Paris, the case was adjourned until 13 June, when an exact date for the trial should be set. Eurocopter, which declines to comment on the affair, has now dropped its application for the case to be heard behind closed doors.
