A company accused of supplying corroded and decades-old Chinese ammunition to the Afghan Army and police has been suspended by the U.S. government for violating its contract, according to U.S. Army documents obtained by CNN.
Miami Beach, Florida-based AEY Inc. is under criminal investigation by the government for allegedly misrepresenting what the company was providing the Afghan security forces.
U.S. government investigators also took numerous photographs of the ammunition showing that it was improperly packaged and corroding, according to the documents.
