Probe questions payments to Bombardier, Chinese firm : South African law firm report says 'vast and peculiar' advances made for locomotives
Jun 11, 2018 - The Globe and Mail (Canada)

An investigation by a South African law firm has found that a state-owned freight company made "vast and peculiar" payments to Bombardier Inc. and a Chinese supplier for hundreds of locomotives that still have not been delivered.
