Another KBR Employee Says She Was Raped While Working for the Military Contractor in Iraq

Saturday 05 June 2010

by: Matt Corley | ThinkProgress

In 2007, former Halliburton/KBR employee Jamie Leigh Jones revealed that she had been gang-raped by her co-workers while working in Baghdad, and then left by the company in a “shipping container for at least 24 hours without food or water.” Jones sued the company and won. KBR has petitioned the Supreme Court to reverse the ruling. Since Jones went public, several more female KBR employees have come forward with allegations of rape. ABC News reports today that “another female ex-employee of KBR has come forward to claim that she was raped while working for the military contracting company in Iraq”:

“According to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Houston Wednesday, Anna Mayo was working at KBR’s facility in Balad in November 2009 when she was assaulted by an unnamed rapist who worked for KBR. She charges that she was choked unconscious with a rope, beaten and raped. The suit seeks damages from KBR and from KBR subsidiary Service Employees International Inc., the contractor that employed Mayo from 2008 to 2009”.

We will lead you through the actions and the consequences of these actions and the effects on the troops and the Army budget”: here.

  1. French firm pays out on bribe claims

    US: A French engineering firm has agreed to pay $338 million (£224m) to settle accusations that it engaged in a decade-long scheme with a former Halliburton subsidiary to bribe Nigerian officials to win construction contracts.

    The Justice Department announced on Monday that Paris-based Technip SA conducted the alleged bribery scheme from 1994 to 2004 so it could obtain contracts valued at more than $6 billion to build liquefied natural gas facilities on Bonny Island.

    Senior department official Mythili Raman said: “The resolutions announced today demonstrate once again the department’s commitment to aggressively investigate and prosecute international bribery by US and foreign corporations alike.”
