STOCKHOLM: An employee at Canadian aircraft and train maker Bombardier was innocent of bribery, a Swedish court ruled on Wednesday.
"The prosecutors have not proved that the charged person has promised or offered an inappropriate benefit," a Stockholm district court said in a statement.
The 37-year-old Russian man was arrested in March on suspicion that he together with several others at Bombardier had bribed an Azerbaijani official to secure a contract worth around US$340 million.
He was released from custody last week as there were "no grounds for keeping him arrested", a court document showed.
