A former Halliburton employee has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for accepting a US $110 000 kickback from an Iraqi contractor. Glenn Allen Powell, 40, of Cedar Park, Texas, was also ordered to pay back $91 000. He earlier pleaded guilty to fraud and violating an anti-kickback law. Powell was a contracts administrator for KBR Inc, a subsidiary of the US construction giant. The prosecution claimed that in exchange for more than $100 000 in a kickback, he put the unnamed company forward for the subcontract to renovate four buildings. An internal investigation by the company uncovered the illicit payment. Halliburton said it blacklisted the Iraqi contractor and compensated the US Military for the financial loss.
