Military travel agency Ashkanani is facing a fresh wave of complaints of fraud and money laundering after a US Air Force officer left the company without telling them he was leaving.
The US Army said on Monday that it was investigating the matter.
The Army said it has hired an outside law firm to investigate the matter and has launched an internal investigation.
The military said in a statement that it has been in regular communication with Ashkanan and that the US Air force has not been reimbursed for the travel expenses.
Ashkanini, a US based company that specialises in military travel, has been operating since 2011 in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
US soldiers can get a free flight from Afghanistan to Kabul, Pakistan or Dubai.
A spokesperson for Ashkanain said the company has been the victim of numerous frauds.
“Our team is committed to ensuring a high level of service and quality and we will take action to address any concerns raised in the report,” the spokesperson said.
According to the report, Ashkanian told the company’s director, “We need to hire more employees, but we have a limited amount of funds available.
We are confident that our team will be able to manage this situation. “
We are confident in our ability to handle this situation with professionalism and integrity.
The spokesperson said that the company was already receiving “significant amounts of complaints” from US soldiers in Afghanistan and was looking into “potential future operational changes”.”
The next step is to discuss with our board the appropriate steps to take in light of this and to make sure the company can operate in the future.”
