Austria to sue Airbus over suspected Eurofighter fraud - APA

VIENNA, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Austria’s defence ministry is set to file a lawsuit against Airbus accusing the group of wilful deception and fraud linked to a 2 billion euro ($2.1 billion) order of Eurofighter jets in 2003, APA news agency said on Thursday.
