A subcontractor providing logistical services on a U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract with Anham FZCO has agreed to pay $45 million
to resolve criminal obstruction charges and civil False Claims Act allegations. Anham and Unitrans International Inc.
had been accused of failing to comply with contract provisions prohibiting materials used to support U.S. troops in Afghanistan from passing through Iran. Based on a qui tam
suit by whistleblowers Rory Maxwell, John Bush, and Supreme Foodservice GmbH, the two contractors also fraudulently induced contracts with DLA and the Army by falsely certifying compliance with the Iran sanctions and falsely representing the status of another project. DOJ
