U.S. contractors sued for allegedly paying ‘protection money’ to the Taliban in Afghanistan | CNBC

Must Read

U.S. and other international contracting companies are being sued for paying protection money to the Taliban in Afghanistan, incriminating them in the death of American troops and civilians in the country. The suit claims the companies paid these bribes in exchange for the terrorist group to leave their business interests alone, leading them to be directly aiding and abetting a terrorist formation. Another claim is that the contracting companies did this to maximize profits rather than for protection, whereas they could have looked to the U.S. military for protection services. Centerra Group, DAI Global, and Janus Global Operations are some of the companies involved. None have commented on the issue.
