Navajo Nation to reopen manufacturing plant
The Navajo Nation is reopening a manufacturing plant after ousting its CEO, who turned out to be a convicted felon.

The tribe went into business with Hak Ghun and BCDS Manufacturing. The company took out a $2.2 million that was backed by the tribe.

BCDS missed loan payments amid revelations that Ghun was convicted of mail fraud, wire fraud, commodity fraud and perjury in 1994. The tribe ousted him earlier this month.

Navajo Economic Development Director Allan Begay said BCDS will get back on track with a government contract for metal and fiberglass fabrication.
