Bolivia’s former interior minister pleaded guilty on Thursday to conspiracy to launder bribes that a Miami-based company paid him in exchange for helping it secure a contract to provide tear gas to the Bolivian government, said the U.S. Department of Justice.

Arturo Murillo, 58, who was arrested last year in the U.S., received at least $532,000 in bribe payments. He served on former interim Bolivian President Jeanine Áñez’s government.

According to a Department of Justice press release, Murillo and his co-conspirators laundered the proceeds of the bribery scheme through the U.S. financial system, including bank accounts in Miami. Murillo pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering and faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.
