4 Brits abducted in Baghdad?

#2
now saying it is a company called "garda world" (possibly GARDA WORLD SECURITY CORPORATION?), possibly formerly Kroll employees?

4 x brit BGs and one x german computer expert. the other german apparently escaped. abductors in police uniform (shock horror) and believed likely to be shia rather than sunni...

I'm guessing the FCO will not want to release names. POC at the parent company, FWIW.

CR,

I stand to be corrected but I believe that Kroll has become Garda via a merger/buyout/corporate deal etc.

Duke
Totally correct Garda World Security bought out Kroll's personnel protection division Dec 2006.

Hopes and prayers that these personnel are delivered back safe and sound...

Fingers crossed , know of a lot of ex military who's gone there for the tax free elements, what else could you do in there position when 40 odd police in uniforms come in with correct paperwork. Hopefully its just for a ransom.

They probably have the correct paperwork because they are the Police. Good chance it's for ransom, let's hope they are not too greedy.

Getting too like Congo to be freelancing over there.

National Geographic Channel has just shown a program on Contractors in Iraq.
It dealt with two Brit Companies, Armour and Hart.
An insight was given into the methods used by these companies and I do think it would have acted as a 'Wind Up' to any Iraqui viewers.

Jon, is there anything worse than people taking the skills they have learnt in the services and then cashing in by buggering off to some third world country?


:D

I doubt that I am qualified to answer your question.
My army trade provided work for me for years after I left.
Nat Geo is an US organisation, yet it did a show on a Brit company, admittedly not the one for whom the 'Abductees worked'.
Men are earning big money for their specialist skills but like the troops on the ground they are placeing their necks on the line.
I do not doubt that the insurgents would have information from contacts within the ministy and I would suspect that they would have had an idea of how the Brit guards wouldbe in a 'relaxed' state inside a ministry.

They will certinly now be earning their money.
