Milan: Months after the shocking revelations of the AgustaWestland bribery case, Finmeccanica ex-CEO Giuseppe Orsi's trial begins on Wednesday. A CBI team will also be attending the trial in Milan.

Orsi and the CEO of its chopper unit Bruno Spagnoli, will go on trial on Wednesday in a Milan court. Orsi was arrested on February 12 on charges of international corruption, bribery and billing fraud over the sale of 12 AgustaWestland helicopters to India.

Orsi is said to have received kickbacks in the Rs 3,600 crore deal with India.
