WASHINGTON (AP) — Navy Secretary Ray Mabus says the Navy has not seen the end of the multimillion dollar bribery and contracting scandal that has implicated several companies and naval personnel. He says more disclosures are coming.

Mabus would not say how much money is involved in the widening probe. But he says the Navy will continue to aggressively go after any naval officers or contractors who may be involved.

Six naval officers have been implicated in the bribery scheme, including three who have been arrested. The case involves allegations that officials accepted pricey vacations and prostitute services for providing information and advice to an Asian defense contractor who then overbilled the Navy for port services.

An agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service pleaded guilty Tuesday to bribery charges.
