The deal inked between the government and French defence giant DCNS has allegedly resulted in kickbacks amounting to millions of ringgit to top Malaysian officials.
During his speech, Bourdon spoke about the RM7.3 billion deal, revealing some details about the beneficiaries of the deal, saying he was determined to expose the corruption related to claims that DCNS paid RM540 million in commission to Perimekar for the purchase of two submarines.
Perimekar is a subsidiary of KS Ombak Laut Sdn Bhd, of which the major shareholder is Abdul Razak Baginda's wife, Mazlinda Makhzan.
Abdul Razak is a close confidante of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who was then deputy prime minister and defence minister overseeing the procurement of the submarines.
Abdul Razak escaped the gallows without his defence being called, while the two police officers are currently appealing their death sentence.
