Another high-ranking French official, allegedly active in corrupt activities, has been indicted over the Scorpene submarine investigation in Paris.

In a joint statement sighted by Malaysiakini, Suaram executive director Sevan Doraisamy and Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel said Dominique Castellan is the officer indicted over the submarine probe.

Castellan is the former CEO of DCN International (DCNI), a mega shipbuilder.

His indictment was linked to Contract C5 between DCNI and Thint Asia in 2000, and the consultancy contract between Thint Asia and Terasasi Sdn Bhd, said the NGOs.
