Major corruption network uncovered in the US Navy

Major corruption network uncovered in the US NavyThe US prosecutor’s office exposed a major international scam involving the captains of warships of the United States Navy, US media reported.


So far, three people have been arrested: Michael Misiewicz, captain of the American destroyer Mastin (class Arleigh Burke), head of the warship supply company Leonard Glenn Francis, and US Navy police officer John Bertrand Belive (John Bertrand Beliveau II), however, as reported by The Washington Post, other Navy officers, including aircraft carrier commanders, may be involved.

It is reported that the company Francis, Glenn Defense Marine, more than 25 years engaged in port maintenance of ships of the US Air Force, greatly overestimating the cost of refueling, parts and repairs.

At the same time, the captains of the ships specifically chose to serve precisely those ports in Southeast Asia, where Glenn Defense Marine worked, since Francis gave them "kickbacks", reports the Voice of Russia.

The scale of the corruption scheme is being specified, but, according to the prosecutor's office of the Southern District of California, the bill can go to hundreds of millions of dollars.

It is noted that Mishievich and Belive supplied Francis with data on the movements of US warships and helped him find new “clients”.

For their services, the captain and the police officer of the Navy received generous gifts: in particular, Belive, Francis paid for the services of prostitutes, and Mishiyevich - restaurant tours in Singapore and Thailand, as well as concerts (in particular, the captain gave tickets to the singer Lady Gaga).

It is reported that the US Navy has already terminated contracts with Glenn Defense Marine for more than 200 million dollars. Mishievich was arrested at the airport in Colorado Springs, and Francis was arrested right in the room of the Marriott hotel in San Diego.

Francis's lawyer, Edward Patrick Swan Jr (Edward Patrick Swan Jr) warned that additional arrests could be made in this case.

          Forgive me, but they steal everywhere! Which confirms this article. But! On a scale such as Unas, perhaps nowhere. And it's stupid to deny it.

      They are scientists themselves, sawing cleaner than ours, here is an example: In 2011, a report came out of the special inspector for the reconstruction of Iraq, Stuart Boven, from whom American generals should have been horrified. As it was found out, the American military contingent, which is located in Iraq, pays for the most ordinary electric switch, the price of which in normal life does not exceed $ 7,5, about 9 hundred dollars. Many times the military overpays and for many other things, in particular, for sewer pipes, which are 57 times more expensive than usual, for washing uniforms - one hundred dollars per bag (the total amount of the contract was 13 billion). Inspector Boven found such incomprehensible contracts with large deviations in cost in only one of Iraqi contracting firms worth $ 300 million! In general, according to Boven, the US military in Iraq signed contracts worth about $ 36 billion, about 40 percent of which cause serious questions and doubts.

      At the same time, a special commission concluded that the money was wasted, moreover, the military could not report back for 8 billions. It was also revealed that rather large sums of money disappeared directly from the US military bases ...

        As I wrote in a comment on another article, if the US military budget is multiplied by the coefficient of corruption, then maybe it’s not very big and big?

    Any shit in any army is enough. The French had so far reformed the army that, out of 208 Leclerc (officially) available military vehicles, only 36 units were in constant readiness.

    The 200 million Euros allocated per year for their maintenance is enough to bring a dozen of them to the parade on July 14 ... Lack of funds to maintain these tanks is most detrimental to their availability and the skills of crews who are forced to sit idle or train on the last 40 years of armored vehicles. A total of 4 people in four regiments with Leclerc tanks suffer from this.

    I think they saw no less than ours. It just depends, it's like ours, in the difference in the size of the stolen. The little things are revealingly set, work is going on, and with grains (as always associated with the government) everything is dignified and noble.
