Dodoma. Parliament has advised the government to sue BAE Systems if the British company fails to pay Sh73.8 billion reparations as ordered by a UK court last year.The recommendations are contained in the report handed over to National Assembly Speaker Anna Makinda by special parliamentary team in Dodoma yesterday. The team, headed by Deputy Speaker Job Ndugai, travelled to Britain last month to present the governments stand that the money should be paid directly to it instead of through charity organisations as preferred by BAE Systems. Mr Ndugai told reporters shortly before handing the report over that they had also advised the government to pursue legal measures against all people implicated in BAE Systems fraudulent sale of radar to Tanzania. Former Attorney General Andrew Chenge, who resigned from the Cabinet in 2008 over the scandal, is among Tanzanians named in the scandal. However, the Minister of State in the President office responsible for Good Governance, Mr Mathias Chikawe, ruled out possibility of prosecuting Mr Chenge on the grounds that he was cleared by Britains Serious Fraud Office, which investigated the matter.Mr Chikawe said the investigations only implicated Mr Sailesh Vithlan, who was the broker in the deal, and two BAE Systems officials. Mr Ndugai said legal proceedings should be instituted against the culprits in Tanzania and elsewhere as they were all responsible for the loss of billions of shillings of taxpayers money.The Kongwa MP said the committee also asked Southwalk Crown Court, which ruled that the money should be refunded to the Tanzania people, to demand the payment from BAE Systems and deposit it in a special account until it is determined how the funds would be repaid to Tanzania. Mr Ndugai added that they had established that the settlement between BAE Systems and SFO was reached out of court, and that it had been crafted by the firms lawyers.The agreement was endorsed by the Southwalk Crown Court with the judge ordering BAE Systems to pay a £500,000 fine and £ 29.5 million to the Tanzanian people. Mr Ndugai said he settlement document indicated that no legal action would be taken against BAE Systems after admitting to the minor charge of failing to keep its accounts properly.The delegation voiced their opposition to the agreement in their various meetings with UK officials since the Tanzania government, which paid for the radar, was not involved the negotiations. Mr Ndugai added that they stated the governments intention to take legal action against all those involved in the scandal. British officials who met the team included members of various parliamentary committees, Transparency International representatives, Department for International Development (DFID) officials and BAE Systems representatives. A member of the team, Mr Mussa Azzan Zungu, said the International Development Committee of the House of Commons expressed its disappointment over the way the matter was handled.He said the committee had invited representatives of Tanzanias Parliament to a public hearing on the controversy on July 19. Mr Azzan said the committee had summoned BAE Systems, the SFO, government officials and other stakeholders to explain the role of each institution in the radar deal.He added that a number of British officials were perplexed as to why the company wanted to refund the money through charity organisations while it was the government that paid for the radar. Another member of the committee, Ms Angela Kairuki, accused some Tanzanians of conspiring against the government. While in Britain, we were shown some emails and other documents written by Tanzanians, urging BAE not to return the money to the government, and instead channel it through NGOs, she said.Ms Kairuki said BAE Systems insisted on channelling the money though charities because it feared further tarnishing its image before the international community. Their charity budget in Britain and other countries does not exceed £3 million a year... it seems like they want to use our money to market their company, she said.Ms Kairuki said that BAE System had established a board that was expected to oversee the disbursement of the money through charities, adding that there was no Tanzanian in the board.There has been heated debate as to how the money should be repaid to Tanzania, with the government insisting that the funds be paid directly to it. But BAE Systems maintains that the money should be paid to British NGOs working in the country. The Opposition has also expressed its disapproval of BAE Systems decision.However, other people, including some opposition politicians and activists, have opposed both the governments and BAE Systems proposals. They say the money should be channelled back to the country through Tanzania-based charities.
