Jet Airways LLC Dubai (JIL’s Global GSA) and JIL improperly paid for these GSAS operational expenditures. Naresh Goyal beneficially owned all of these GSAs. As a result, JIL’s management followed Naresh Goyal’s lead and continued to pay large quantities of money regularly. Even though these firms were not rendering any significant service after 2009, Naresh Goyal and his family used the money received for personal purposes and investments.
