ナミビア 米軍事会社(傭兵会社)に追放命令 イラクとアフガニスタンへの要員募集が理由【AP通信】
テーマ:世界の動き

10月14日、AP通信がナミビアの首都、ウィントフークから配信した記事によると、ナミビア政府は、イランとアフガニスタンで働く米軍事会社の要員を募集したとして、2名のアメリカ人を国外追放した。

またナンディヌ・ダイトワ情報大臣は、ラスベガスを本拠にした米軍事会社(Special Operations Consulting-Security Management Group、略称SOC・SMG)の現地事務所の閉鎖を勧告した、と述べた。

会社はこれまでに少なくともナミビア人3000人を職業紹介所を通じて、月給1000jで雇用することをめざしていたが、これはナミビアの法律の下では非合法である。国民が国防省の書面による許可なしに外国で治安や軍事活動をするのをナミビアでは禁じている。情報大臣によれば、米人2名はそうしたことを承知の上で募集活動を行っていたと言う。

米軍事会社(傭兵会社)のブラックウォーター社の傭兵隊が、イラク市民に銃を乱射して多数を殺傷した事件や、オーストラリアの会社も2名の女性を自動車を接近させすぎたとして射殺した事件など、イラクでは軍事会社(傭兵会社)の起こす一般市民を標的にした殺傷事件が連続して起こっている。しかも今回ナミビアから追放された会社でも、要員のかなりを米人以外が占め、他の軍事会社(傭兵会社)もほぼ同様の状態である。

こうした実態はイラク占領政策の破綻と米軍の窮状を明らかにしたものである。兵員不足で民間会社に人員を依存せざるを得ず、それでも米人だけでは人材が不足するため、大量に外国人をリクルートする。管理も訓練も不十分な体制では、ブラックウォータ社事件が起こたのも当然であり、今後、第2、第3の事件が起こるのは必至である。

Namibia Deports US Security Employees(Forbes.com)
By RODRICK MUKUMBIRA 10.14.07, 1:50 PM ET

WINDHOEK, Namibia - Authorities have ordered the deportation of two Americans working for a security firm that was trying to recruit Namibians to work as guards at U.S. facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan, a government minister said.

The Namibian Cabinet also recommended the closure of the local branch of the Las Vegas-based security firm, Special Operations Consulting-Security Management Group (SOC-SMG), which was set up earlier this month, Information Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah said Friday.

Nandi-Ndaitwah said two American employees of the firm - Paul Grimes, the firm's country representative and Fredric Piry, the chief of operations - were to be "immediately removed" from the country. They had been given 24 hours to leave Namibia, she said Friday.

It was not clear Sunday whether Grimes and Piry, who were staying at a five-star hotel in the capital Windhoek, had left the country. Calls to their mobile phones were not answered.

The U.S. Embassy in Windhoek and the State Department did not immediately comment on the situation Sunday.

Private security firms operating in Iraq and Afghanistan have come under increasing scrutiny. The Iraqi government has ordered Blackwater USA expelled from the country within six months following the shootings of 17 Iraqi civilians last month. Officials are also investigating the shootings of two Iraqi women by guards working for an Australian-owned firm on Tuesday.

Some U.S. lawmakers have said the government relies too heavily on private contractors who fall outside the military courts martial system. Many of the contractors working in Iraq are also third-country nationals. Triple Canopy, a security company that has State Department contracts, has scores of Peruvian guards working checkpoints in the Green Zone.

According to SOC-SMG's Web site, the firm's clients include the U.S. departments of defense, state and energy, as well as the U.S. Army, Air Force, Marines and Naval special forces.

The company had aimed to recruit at least 3,000 Namibians to work in Iraq and Afghanistan through a local employment agency, with promised salaries of $1,000 a month, local newspapers reported. It is not clear whether anyone had been recruited yet.

Local media quoted Grimes as saying the company had the blessing of the country's labor and safety and security ministries. "We are looking for noncombatant security guards to guard dining facilities, gyms, military base hospitals in Iraq," Grimes was quoted as saying in one newspaper.

Under Namibian law, however, it is illegal for citizens to participate in security or military activities in foreign countries without the written permission of the Defense Ministry. Last week, Nandi-Ndaitwah warned citizens that they risked prosecution if they were recruited by the company.

The firm had been targeting Namibians over the age of 25 as well as veterans of Namibia's lengthy war with South Africa for independence. The company is reported to have held meetings with some increasingly disaffected war veterans, who have been campaigning for hefty pensions and gratuities from the state for their roles in the guerrilla war.

A sparsely populated desert country, Namibia presents an easy option for companies hoping to operate under the legal radar. The country also presents an alternative to neighboring South Africa, where controversial anti-mercenary legislation has been introduced which will clamp down on citizens wanting to work in security and military sectors abroad.

An estimated 2,000 to 4,000 South Africans worked in Iraq last year, helping guard oil installations, hotels and foreign residents. Thousands more are in other countries like Nigeria and Afghanistan. Many of them are white former members of the apartheid-era armed forces.
