Agility fraud charges could be dropped on a technicality

FRAUD charges against Agility may be dropped on a technicality. A US magistrate ruled that the Department of Justice (DoJ) did not follow correct procedure in its phrasing of the paperwork associated with the initial charges.

The magistrate ruled that the charges against Agility’s US-based subsidiary, Agility DGS Holdings, should be dismissed. The magistrate’s ruling is only a recommendation to the local district court, which will decide whether or not to accept it.

Agility was originally accused of overcharging the US Army on foodstuffs supplied in the Middle East. However, Agility has hotly denied the charges, claiming that the allegations come from a competitor well known for attempting to sabotage Agility’s business.
