A Paris commercial court has rejected a claim against Eurocopter by a Portuguese businessman, who was claiming substantial commission relating to an estimated $2 billion sale of helicopter kits to South Africa during the period of the UN arms embargo against the country. The businessman claimed that Aerospatiale ( the predecessor of Eurocopter) sold the kits to OGMA of Portugal, knowing they would be shipped to Pretoria and assembled as the Oryx.
