George E. Green, 57, a former director of contracts, procurement, and grants for International Relief and Development Inc. (IRD), was indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on wire fraud and bribery charges.
The DOJ alleged that Green solicited and received bribes totaling $66,000 from a representative of an Afghan firm that contracted with IRD, then wired some of the payments to an Italian car dealer. After returning to the U.S., Green attempted to hide the bribes by conspiring to structure cash deposits into his bank and credit card accounts to avoid mandatory cash reporting requirements.
Green was officially charged with conspiracy to structure financial transaction to avoid currency transaction reporting requirements, wire fraud, and receipt of bribes in connection with a program receiving federal funds. He is awaiting trial.
