Jurist alerts us that "US Indicts Former Halliburton Subsidiary Employee for Fraud."
So what's it all about?
Well, it seems that "Assistant Attorney General Christopher A. Wray of the Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Jan Paul Miller of the Central District of Illinois announced today that two men," one a former employee of "Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR)" and the other a "managing partner of a Kuwaiti business, LaNouvelle General Trading and Contracting Company - have been indicted on charges of devising a scheme to defraud the United States of more than $3.5 million related to the awarding of a subcontract to LaNouvelle to supply fuel tankers for military operations in Kuwait." The charges are for "major fraud against the United States and six counts of wire fraud."
