UK: Interbrew drops legal case with media groups
Interbrew, the Belgian brewer, announced late on Friday that it had dropped its legal battle to see five media organisations hand over leaked financial documents pertaining to a takeover by Interbrew of South African Breweries earlier this year. In a statement Interbrew said it was "pleased that all five the news organisations are continuing constructive negotiations with the Financial Services Authority (FSA). Interbrew, as a victim of manipulation of forged documents, has played its role in facilitating these discussions and will now withdraw from this case, leaving it in the hands of the financial regulatory authority, FSA."
