DoJ settles fraud case with German security guard firm

 Securitas GmbH Werkschutz has paid the United States 6,529,042 Euros (approximately $9.1 million) to settle allegations that the German company billed the Army, under contracts to provide security at U.S. Army installations in Germany, for guard hours not actually worked, the Justice Department announced today. The United States alleged that the overcharging violated the False Claims Act and brought counterclaims based on fraud in several actions that Securitas had filed against the Army in the Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., seeking additional compensation under one of the contracts at issue, Securitas GmbH Werkschutz v. United States, Nos. 07-255/6/7C (Fed. Cl.)
