The word is pretty quiet on what has occurred here so far.  It appears to be related to DOD contracts from what is said here.  Siemens does quite a bit with DOD and not too long ago I posted about the Ultrasound Cuff to stop internal bleeding, but this may be something totally different.  image

Over the last year there was quite a bit of unrest over in Germany too with the resignation of the CEO of healthcare, not to mention some pretty large layoffs and job cuts.  BD  

WASHINGTON, April 22 (Reuters) - Pentagon investigators searched the Pennsylvania offices of a unit of Germany's Siemens AG (SIEGn.DE) on Wednesday as part of an investigation of a Siemens contract with the U.S. military, a company spokesman said.

"Investigators from the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) of the U.S. Defense Department today conducted a limited search of Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc's Malvern facility," said spokesman Lance Longwell.

"The search was in connection with an investigation of a Siemens contract with the Department of Defense," Longwell said. He did not identify which contract was in question.

Ed Bradley, DCIS special agent in charge, said the search of the Siemens facility in Malvern, a suburb of Philadelphia, began early on Wednesday and continued throughout the day. He gave no details on the nature of the investigation.
