An Italy-based firm that supplies small drones to the country’s special forces, Alpi Aviation was allegedly illegally purchased by Chinese state companies, according to Italian investigators.

Last week Italian investigators raided the company and put six of its managers under investigation. Under Italian law, a company supplying the Italian defence forces cannot be sold to interests outside of Italy without special permission. Permission was not obtained for Alpi Aviation, which was sold to Chinese firms in 2018.
