A third US sailor pleaded guilty Tuesday to accepting cash and luxury goods in exchange for classified Navy information in a bribery scandal involving ships in Asia and the Pacific. Petty officer Daniel Layug, who was based in Japan at the time and faces up to five years in prison, admitted accepting over $10,000 from Singapore-based defence contractor Glenn Defence Marine Asia (GDMA). In return, the 27-year-old gave them classified ship schedules and sensitive information about an ongoing criminal investigation into their activities.
