Navy officials said revealing additional names or more information about their involvement could violate their privacy rights and compromise ongoing cases. Their cases have been handled administratively, meaning they did not involve criminal charges.
In many instances, the Navy was prevented from taking tougher action because the statute of limitations under military law — five years for most felonies — had expired.
Roughead, who retired soon after the 2011 ceremony, said in an email that he couldn’t “recall particulars” about who was invited to the event. In an email, Greenert said he had not been contacted by investigators and did not know how Francis came to be invited to the ceremony.
He said he, Roughead and their spouses spent hours in a receiving line and posed for several pictures.
Even while he and his firm were being targeted by Navy criminal investigators, he received VIP invitations to ceremonies in Annapolis and Pearl Harbor, where he hobnobbed with four-star admirals, according to photographs obtained by The Washington Post.
The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against 28 people, including two admirals, since Francis was arrested in an international sting operation four years ago.
Despite being under the microscope, Francis was still able to rub shoulders with many of the Navy’s top leaders.
In September 2011, for example, he was invited to the Naval Academy in Annapolis to attend a change-of-command ceremony for the Navy’s highest-ranking officer.
In response to queries from The Post, the Navy recently confirmed that it has been reviewing the conduct of 440 other active-duty and retired personnel — including 60 current and former admirals — for possible violations of military law or federal ethics rules in their dealings with Francis and his company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia.
Francis, 53, is in jail in San Diego as he awaits sentencing in federal court.
