Defense Contractor blames Accuser in War-Profiteering Trial
Founding partner Michael J. Battles of Custer Battles spent five hours last Friday answering charges in the whistleblower lawsuit being tried in Virginia. Battles testified that he had “zero contact” with the multimillion-dollar currency project in Iraq that has led to accusations of war-profiteering against him and his company. And he disavowed any knowledge of the “fake invoices” and “sham companies” that he and his co-defendants are charged with creating to defraud the US government out of millions of dollars.
Instead, Battles blamed the problems with the Iraqi Currency Exchange project on William D. “Pete” Baldwin, the former employee who helped to craft the charges in the whistleblowers lawsuit now on trial in federal court.
