MEDICORP-INTERMEDIC, KBR and Global Linguist Solutions Medical Contractor

There is a company called MEDICORP–a partner with INTERMEDIC, that is one of the most corrupt companies doing business in Iraq:

The owners: GABI MUNTEAN, and ROBERT McVICKERs. are from Australia, with a headquarters in Jordan.

1) They are doing business illegally in Iraq–they do not have the business registered there

2) They are trafficking in people from other countries and then refusing to buy them VISAs to return home. 4 employees were arrested and Gabi Muntean secretly paid off corrupt Iraqi officials to get the employees out

3) MediCorp moved out of Baghdad and moved all of their crap to a camp in Al Zubair, and have been sending employees who are not certified to conduct physicals for KBR and Global Linguist Solutions. They have a janitor doing X-rays!!

4) The owners force employees to travel throughout Iraq on exit VISAs in order to get thee physicals completed, and then they submit the claims forms to the insurance companies for payment. This is ALL ILLEGAL!!

5) They have refused to pay at least two Americans for the last month of work, and left an American expat in Iraq without a place to live, saying that he “abandoned his job”, after he left the camp to work with the residency officer to help get the 4 TCNs out of jail

They have refused to contact him, answer his emails, or do anything to make things right–it will cost a small fortune that he does not have to sue them for it, and the DODIG was contacted, but they haven’t done anything about it. The U.S. Embassy has not reached out to him, the D.O.S. is not available—and these two people, who are among the richest people in Australia, get away with doing business this way!!!

The guy just wants to get paid—
