U.K. Government Appeals BAE Decision

The U.K. government is appealing the High Court’s ruling that the Serious Fraud Office broke the law in shutting down an investigation into BAE’s sale of jet fighters to Saudi Arabia. Pending the appeal to the House of Lords, the SFO will not reopen the investigation. The High Court panel of Lord Justice Moses and Mr. Justice Sullivan gave the government permission to challenge their judgment because the case raises crucial issues. As reported by the Guardian (here), Lord Justice Moses said: “This is a paradigm case that goes to the way this country is governed and to its constitutional principles.”
