Unaccountable Case File 00013-00014
Below are the documents cited in Unaccountable profiles 00012-00013. These profiles are the third and fourth in a series of profiles based on the corporations and middlemen implicated in the multibillion-dollar Arms Deal of the late 1990s. None of these companies or individuals have been held to account. These profiles turn the spotlight onto John Bredenkamp and Fana Hlongwane, who were contracted by British arms giant BAE Systems in relation to the Arms Deal.
This week, Open Secrets continues to profile the corporations and individuals implicated in corruption in the 1999 Arms Deal but yet to be held to account. The European arms corporations that profited from the deal used a similar modus operandi – pay well-connected middlemen and agents to guarantee access to politicians and key decision-makers. This week we turn the spotlight onto John Bredenkamp, who was contracted by British arms giant BAE Systems in relation to the Arms Deal. This is the first in a three-part series detailing the lucrative relationship between BAE Systems and its covert international network of middlemen.

This is the second in a three-part Open Secrets series detailing the lucrative relationship between BAE Systems and its covert international network of middlemen. As we saw in Unaccountable 00012, BAE, like many European arms corporations looking to profit from South Africa’s 1999 Arms Deal, paid well-connected middlemen and agents vast sums of money to guarantee access to politicians and key decision-makers. This focuses on another of these middlemen – Fana Hlongwane.
