Contractor Pleads Guilty in Iraq Bribes Case

By John Lee.

A man extradited from Iraq to the United States has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and to two charges related to leaving the country after his arrest.

Metin Atilan, who has dual Turkish and U.S. citizenship, was charged with conspiring to pay bribes and kickbacks to win a contract to supply 353 trailers for U.S. operations in Iraq.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on 1st July; his attorney said Thursday that the two sides agreed to request a sentencing range of 30 to 63 months with a $1 million fine and other conditions.
