France-Taiwan-Justice-Ships

(FILES) -- A file photo taken 13 June 1992 shows the Lafayette frigate, which is identical to the six warships sold to Taipei in 1991, in Lorients naval base, western France. Five years after the beginning of the investigation on the six naval frigates sold to Taiwan, French judges closed 12 October 2006 the state-related case, without identifying the beneficiaries of the potential retro-commissions payed during the 2, 8 billion dollar deal.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the Lafayette frigate, an identical model to the six warships sold to Taiwan in 1991, at Lorients naval base in western France. Taken on June 13,1992, it serves as a reminder of a significant event that unfolded five years later. The investigation into the sale of these naval frigates to Taiwan reached its conclusion on October 12,2006 when French judges closed the state-related case. However, disappointingly, they failed to identify those who benefited from potential retro-commissions paid during this colossal $2.8 billion deal. The image showcases the sheer power and might of this warship with its imposing structure and military precision. Its presence symbolizes both strength and justice intertwined within international relations. As we delve into history through this photograph by Philippe Huguen from Agence France-Presse (AFP), we are reminded of how complex political dealings can be shrouded in secrecy. While this picture does not mention any specific company or allude to commercial use, it highlights an important chapter in diplomatic affairs between France and Taiwan. It invites us to reflect upon the intricate dynamics surrounding arms deals and their consequences for global relationships. In essence, this thought-provoking image immortalizes a moment frozen in time—a visual testament to a story that remains untold despite our desire for transparency and accountability within such high-stakes transactions involving nations' defense forces.
