The authorities of the three countries responded to a request in connection with alleged corruption during the purchase of the aircraft between 2007 and 2009.
“It is a long road, but it is being driven. We are pleased that there is cooperation from the countries we requested information from,” the source said.
In addition to the three countries mentioned above, the Mozambican attorney general, who has already charged three defendants in the case, also requested information from France, the United States and the United Kingdom, who said they were still working on the information requested.

The amount was deposited into the São Tomé and Príncipe account of a fictitious company created as part of the suspected corruption scheme, one of a number of illicit payments that the Brazilian manufacturer is alleged to have made in several countries.Last week, Brazilian officials took evidence from people directly involved in the aircraft acquisition process at a hearing that attended by prosecutors from the Mozambican attorney general’s office.
