RADM Wetherald cited a "loss of confidence in Dusek’s ability to command" in relieving him of his duties. Captain Dusek, who has not been charged with a crime yet, is under investigation by the Justice Department in the alleged bribery scandal, which broke last month and appears to be expanding.
The investigation has focused on an alleged scheme to swap classified ship information for luxury travel and prostitutes, and has led to the arrests of a former commanding officer of the USS Mustin, an NCIS agent and the head of Singapore-based defense contractor Glenn Defense Marine Asia, which has been providing support services for more than 25 years.
“After careful consideration, RADM Wetherald determined the investigation negatively affected Dusek’s leadership ability and was a distraction to the command mission.”
