Munich - A German businessman, 51, was given a two-year suspended sentence and fined 50,000 euros (74,250 dollars) Wednesday for bribing staff of European Aeronautic Defence and Space (EADS), the parent company of Airbus.

The court in Munich ruled that he paid 1.3 million marks (1 million dollars at current rates) to two EADS employees in 2001 to win a contract to edit product handbooks for his business.

His business partner still faces trial. The EADS staff, aged 55 and 60, received jail terms earlier.
