Private Military/Security Companies 

Private Military Companies or Private Security Companies are a reality in 21st century conflicts all around the globe.  Often mistaken with their ancient predecessors (the so-called mercenaries), offer their protection/defensive services to both private and public clients, including NGOs, United Nations, aid agencies and goverments.

This site is a portal which offers news and articles on this topic. A controversial topic which gains more and more public attention due to their status as civilians and increasing casualties among this group of operators .

Together with the whole private security community we are crediting their sacrifice. Be it to their country, their client or asset to be protected or their buddies working at their side. 
 
Prosecutors ask for 30-year prison sentence for Briton accused in Equatorial Guinea coup plot Print
2008-06-17

MALABO, Equatorial Guinea (AP) - Prosecutors are requesting a 30-year prison sentence for a British ex-officer accused of masterminding a failed coup plot in Equatorial Guinea.
Attorney General Jose Olo Obono has told the court that the charges against Simon Mann are serious enough to merit the death penalty. But an extradition agreement prohibits the death penalty

Mann is accused of trying to overthrow longtime President Teodoro Obiang. Prosecutors call him the ringleader of a coup plot financed by the son of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Mann claims he and his team were hired as presidential bodyguards.
The Briton was extradited from Zimbabwe in January. His trial began Tuesday. A verdict is expected this week.
