Ex-Army Major in Prison- II
January 15, 2010
Fraud in the business of defense contracts. It’s been a problem. A few years ago, the Department of Justice created the National Procurement Fraud Task force to investigate. The FBI has a role. Special Agent Marc Diehl is in the FBI’s Washington, D.C., Field Office.
Mr. Schiff: Fraud in the business of defense contracts. It’s been a problem. A few years ago, the Department of Justice created the National Procurement Fraud Task force to investigate. The FBI has a role. Special Agent Marc Diehl is in the FBI’s Washington, D.C., Field Office.
Mr. Diehl: "Bribes were being paid from civilian contractors.”
Mr. Schiff: Diehl says one case had an army major pocketing thousands of dollars.
Mr. Diehl: "There were several fencing contract and bottled water deals in total. The individual we are talking about received about $245,000 in bribe money.”
Mr. Schiff: The major in question was a contract specialist. Diehl says he would get paid in Afghanistan under the table and then send the money to a contractor in the states and then the money was put into the major’s account.
Mr. Diehl: "With that money, he used the majority of it to pay for his child’s school and the rest on the purchase of a house.”
Mr. Schiff: It was a guilty plea to bribery and making a false statement. The former major has to pay back the money and spend nearly five years in prison. I’m Neal Schiff of the Bureau, and that’s the FBI’s Closed Case of the Week.”
