A US purchaser faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to a charge of bribery.

Bryan Lee Burrows this week admitted conspiracy to solicit kickbacks in connection with a $1.4 billion (£857 million) security services contract.

Court documents showed that between February and May this year Burrows was working in Kabul, Afghanistan, for Civilian Police International, a Virginia-based company that provides law enforcement training internationally.

The US Department of Justice said he conspired with others to solicit bribes from security services suppliers in exchange for preferential treatment during the award subcontracts.

Borrows pleaded guilty and faces up to five years in jail, as well as a maximum fine of $250,000 (£153,000). His sentencing date is yet to be confirmed.
