James is one of the three alleged middlemen being probed
in the case, apart from Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa, by ED and CBI. Both the agencies have also notified an Interpol Red Corner Notice (RCN) or the global arrest warrant against him after a court had earlier also issued an open-ended NBW against him.
The present complaint delved into the detailed role of James in the deal, his multiple visits to India and his transactions. The first complaint in the case was filed in November 2014.
According to sources, ED has already sought Michel’s extradition from the UK.
In the present complaint, the agency also claimed that the three middlemen “managed” to make inroads into the Indian Air Force in order to influence and subvert the stand of the force regarding reducing the service ceiling — the altitude at which a helicopter can fly – of the helicopters from 6,000 metres to 4,500 metres in 2005 after which AgustaWestland became eligible to supply the dozen helicopters for VVIP flying duties.
It said that remittances made by James through his Dubai- based firm Ms Global Services, FZE to a media firm he floated in Delhi, along with two Indians, were made from the funds which he got from Ms AgustaWestland SpA through “criminal activity” and corruption being done in the chopper deal that led to the subsequent generation of proceeds of crime.
