|Used for facilitateing bribes during arms deals|
MTS had an office in Abbey Orchard Street, only a few strides from the Ministry of Defence. It was set up in 1967 as a limited company, a subsidiary of Crown Agents. As a limited liability company, MTS make it easier to put together credit deals for the Crown Agents' customers and hide bribes. "Foreign buyers frequently wanted the apparent respectability of official government-to-government package deals, while Whitehall wanted to pretend it had nothing to do with bribery and its inevitable stench. The motto at MTS was therefore henceforth to be: "Now you see it; now you don't.""
