By Stefanno Sulaiman

Indonesia plans to sue the United Kingdom’s anti-graft agency for a share of a 991 million euro ($1.04 billion) bribery settlement paid by aircraft maker Airbus to the British government, its law minister said on Wednesday.

Airbus, the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer, agreed to the payout in 2020 as part of a record $4 billion settlement with France, Britain and the U.S. following a 3-1/2 year criminal investigation into allegations of bribery and corruption.
