Ex-military contractor escapes house arrest



Mastermind of the largest corruption scandal in US Navy history is on the run after cutting of his ankle bracelet

A former military contractor who was at the centre of the largest corruption scandal in U.S. Navy history, has escaped house arrest.

It comes just three weeks before he was set to face sentencing.

The fugitive, known to many as “Fat Leonard”, pleaded guilty to bribery and fraud charges in 2015.

He bribed U.S. Navy officials with cash, prostitutes, and all-expenses paid trips, in exchange for access to military intelligence, earning him millions.

According to authorities, when police arrived at Francis’ home, all that they found was an ankle bracelet he had cut off and left in a portable cooler.

This all comes as the U.S. Military is reporting a 13 per cent spike in the number of sexual assaults last year.

It’s understood 36,000 service members had experienced unwanted sexual assault, with the Army reporting its largest spike in nearly a decade.

Despite this, the Pentagon says it is working to stamp out this poor behaviour.

Affinity V was floating again about five hours later, authority spokesperson George Safwat said. 

Affinity V was travelling from Portugal to Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea port of Yanbu.
