The Privatization of War: Mercenaries, Private Military and Security Companies (PMSC)
In 2005, 105 Chileans were providing/or undergoing military training
in the former army base of Lepaterique in Honduras. The instruction
consisted in anti‐guerrilla tactics such as possible ambushes and
deactivation of explosives and mortars how to avoid them. The Chileans
had entered Honduras as tourists and were illegally in Honduras. They
used high‐caliber weapons such as M‐16 rifles or light machine guns.
They had been contracted by a subsidiary of Triple Canopy.
They were part of a group, which included also 189 Hondurans
recruited and trained in Honduras. Triple Canopy had been awarded a
contract by the United States Department of State. The strong contingent
left the country by air from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, in several
groups with a stopover in Iceland. Then reached the Middle East and were
smuggled into Iraq.
The majority of the Chileans and Hondurans were engaged as security
guards at fixed facilities in Iraq. They had been contracted by Your
Solutions Honduras SRL, a local agent of Your Solutions Incorporated,
registered in Illinois, United States of America, which in turn had been
subcontracted by Triple Canopy, based in Chicago, United States of
America. Some of the Chileans are presently working in Baghdad providing
security to the Embassy of Australia under a contract by Unity
Resources Group (URG).
