Man accused of bribing Air Force for military contract

SACRAMENTO, Calif. » A Romanian national has been charged in Sacramento federal court with bribing an Air Force officer in order to obtain a $10.35 million military contract.

The Sacramento Bee reports that FBI agents arrested Dumitru Martin at the San Francisco International Airport on Dec. 1. He had been asked by individuals posing as facilitators of the bribery scheme to come to San Francisco for a meeting.

According to court documents, Martin’s company made a $100,000 down payment three months ago on what was to be a bribe of more than $1 million to a major in command of a contracting squadron at Travis Air Force Base.

The bribe was allegedly to secure a contract for Martin’s company o supply shipping and storage containers to U.S. forces at Mihail Kogalnice Air Base in Romania.
