Textile importer American Dawn, Inc. and its executives Habib Rawjee, Mahmud Rawjee, and Adnan Rawjee, agreed to pay roughly $2.3 million to resolve allegations of violating the False Claims Act by intentionally misclassifying certain textiles such as bath and shop towels imported into the United States in order to pay lower tariff rates. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by a former employee of American Dawn. The whistleblower will receive an award of roughly $400,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (NDGA)
