Re: The Settlement of the £29.5 Million to Tanzanian People
I understand that BAE Systems has formed an advisory board on Tanzania chaired by Lord Cairns in line with the settlement agreement with the UK 's Serious Fraud Office (SFO), approved by the UK’s High Court in December 2010. As part of the settlement BAE Systems agreed to pay the sum of £29.5 million for the benefit of the people of Tanzania.
I am aware that a group of Tanzania all party parliamentarians have visited Britain to press for the payment of the settlement of 29.5 million pounds through the Tanzania’s Government rather than Non- Governmental Organizations (NGOs).
As a Tanzanian citizen, I am monitoring this issue very closely, I want to express my strong support to BAE System for its decision to return the money to the Tanzanian people through NGO's instead of the same tainted corrupt Tanzanian Government officials. Please bear in that this all party parliamentarians visit in Britain is costing us already.
Thank you for your cooperation.
