U.S. v. Farouki et al. (Fraud on Military Support Contracts)

Three men—including an Anham executive—were charged with defrauding the U.S. government on contracts to provide food and supplies to U.S. troops in Afghanistan, engaging in illegal commerce in Iran, and money laundering. Abul Huda Farouki, chairman and CEO of Anham LLC, Mazen Farouki, the president of a logistics company with close ties to Anham, and Salah Maarouf, operator of a company that procured goods and services for Anham, are accused of defrauding the Department of Defense by submitting bids on the $8 billion SPV-A contract misrepresenting their progress in constructing warehouses in Afghanistan as required by the contract. The government also alleges the men violated the Iran Sanctions Act by shipping warehouse building materials to Afghanistan via Iran. The government also alleges violations with respect to a $984 million contract to supply trucking services to the U.S. military in Afghanistan.
