The US Department of Justice reports that former Pentagon official Matthew Lamho was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison for taking bribes and defrauding the government.
It is specified that the 47-year-old man worked in the Pentagon's Office of the Inspector General. He was engaged in contracts for telecommunications services. He began committing his crimes in 2012.
Lamho received funds for helping the company win contracts without competition. At the same time, the briber did not have the necessary experience and the number of employees in the state. Also, the American gave false testimony in court, writes CNTV.
