LIMA, Peru (AP) - Peru is asking the United States to provide the names of the members of the Peruvian armed forces who accepted bribes from a U.S. airplane engine maintenance company.

The Texas-based company Dallas Airmotive Inc. admitted to violating U.S. foreign bribery law earlier this month and agreed to pay a fine. The company bribed officials in Brazil, Argentina and Peru between 2008 and 2011.

On Saturday, Peruvian president Ollanta Humala vowed to find and expel the air force members who took bribes.

Foreign Minister Gonzalo Gutierrez said Tuesday that Peru had requested additional details as it investigates the incident.

Peru’s military has a history of corruption, and suffered through serious scandals in the 1980s and 1990s.
