UN Probes Honduran Militia in Iraq Print

Tegucigalpa, Aug 25 (Prensa Latina) The UN Human Rights Commission launched a probe on alleged government consent in training and sending hundreds of Honduran mercenaries to Iraq.

Private security companies like Your Solutions enrolled these men in several Central American countries for the alleged reconstruction and guarding of government and civilian installations in Iraq.

The UNHRC is striving to establish official involvement in the enlisting and training of Hondurans sent to Iraq in 2005.

UNHRC Team Chief Amanda Benavides termed these activities a threat for peace and security in developing countries.

Benavides added that private military and security companies like Your Solutions also operate in developed countries with a 25,000 member troop that stands as the second occupation force in Iraq.

The US Treasury revealed that these companies have landed 766 million dollars plus contracts since 2003 to ruthlessly recruit mercenaries with thousands of dollars in daily salaries.

These firms are also blamed with fraud and clashes with US occupation forces.
