Francis Charged in Navy Bribery Case

Defenseone.com reports: On the day of the Washington Navy Yard shooting, a team from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service in San Diego was arresting Leonard Francis, the president of Glenn Defense Marine Asia, a Singapore-based defense company that’s been providing port services to the U.S. Navy in key areas in Asia for 25 years.
