New Jersey-based Para-Plus Translations, Inc., together with its owners Robert Santiago, III and Sonia Santiago, agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle charges of violating the False Claims Act by submitting invoices to federal and state governmental clients that purposefully overstated the travel time and mileage incurred by its interpreters.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Kimberly Martin under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  She will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (WDPA)
