A military contractor is suing the government of Iraq, claiming it is owed roughly $25 million for work it did for the country’s Ministry of Defense.
In a complaint filed Monday at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Wye Oak Technology said it was commissioned in 2004 to repair and refurbish Iraq’s damaged military equipment and to gather tons of scrap metal for sale. The company ultimately fixed 160 armored vehicles, including tanks, and readied an armored brigade for an election day parade in 2005. It submitted invoices for $24,714,697, but was not paid.
