According to reports, Romania
n and British anti-fraud officials said on Friday they were investigating a 2003 deal in which two used British naval ships were refurbished by defence company BAE Systems (BAESY)
and sold to Romania.
Romania's anti-graft watchdog said it launched an inquiry into the $214m deal to buy former Royal Navy type
22 frigates, HMS Coventry and HMS London, but did not specify which part of the deal was under investigation.
It is said that British officials were looking into suspected corruption linked to the refurbishment deal for the ships, noting that in connection with its probe two people had been arrested and released without charge this week in London.
