Hispania TV: An Iraqi politician accused the UK private security company G4S of being involved in the assassination of Iranian Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani.

Controversies involving the company have included use of immigrant-detainee labour in prisons,[105] extreme misconduct in child custodial institutions in the UK and the US,[106][107][108][109][110] allegations of police telephone data manipulation,[111] its troubled nine-year employment of Orlando, Florida terrorist Omar Mateen,[112][113] and the 2016 riot at Birmingham Prison in Birmingham, England.[114][72]

The commander of the Quds Force of the Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) of Iran, Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, and the deputy commander of the Popular Mobilization Units of Iraq (Al-Hashad Al-Shabi in Arabic), Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, were martyred on January 3 in a drone strike perpetrated by the US in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq.

This Monday the leader of the Iraqi political party Asaib Ahl al-Haq, Qais Al-Jazali, accused the British company G4S—responsible for the security of Baghdad International Airport—of involvement in the murder of Soleimani, Al-Muhandis and other Iranian and Iraqi commanders.

“The company participated an element of the mission, in order to verify the objective of carrying out the assassination,” declared the senior official of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, part of the Popular Mobilization Units of Iraq, in statements offered to the Iraqi television station Al Ahad.

This company should be in the vicinity of any plane that lands at the airport, but on the day that the terrorist attack took place, the G4S car was in front of the passenger runway, he added.

In addition, Al-Jazali continued, National Security officials found security cameras near the runway of the plane, whose objective was to monitor the movements of Soleimani and Al-Muhandis, heroes of the fight against terrorism.

In fact, the President of the Iraqi National Bloc Al-Sanad, Ahmed Al-Asadi, revealed on Sunday that the US used three unmanned aircraft (drones), which had flown over Iraqi airspace for almost 20 hours, awaiting Soleimani’s arrival to Baghdad International Airport from Syria or Lebanon.

Faced with the US violation of Iraqi sovereignty, the Iraqi Resistance groups and authorities insist on their right to expel US soldiers from the Arab country.

  1. Heredity based government operates differently from the US , and it looks as though we are not defining ourselves in the right way, but allowing these hereditary systems to control too much of our integral systems.
    If Britain wants to keep our business, let them abolish the house of Lords , and let the Queen abdicate and abandon the throne. We are spreading democracy right ?

  2. this isn’t the time of start to control these very threat to security of many nations?
    no??
    every western countries has many security entities which are the home for enlistment of mercenaries to send in Syria, Lybia, Iraq, Afghanistan, ALL Middle East and procure terrorism or support terrorism following orders of Pentagon and/or other evil entities very often part of evil governments in their object of destroying regimes and often creating disorder to help zionists or other very evil actors.
    they are the first to make false flag ops
    they are the first line of steal oil to Syria and many rare metals ALL OVER THE WORLD (all Africa, Colombia, Perù, Chile, Brazil, Afghanistan, Lybia, various former sovietic nations that hosts thousandt of them as Ukronazia, Bulgaria, Romania, baltic evil states, Poland, Azerbaijan, Kazahistan, Thailand in new color revolution, and many many many other nations where official soldiers can’t stay).
    Why ONU is doing nothing? This actions, very crimes, why are not punished AT ALL?
    Our western nations are the first culprits with great corporations of creating a new very evil colonialism, creating exploitment of entire populations, HUMAN RIGHTS WHERE ARE?

    • a very unspeakable crime and an immense shame for all western people which must be found guilty of allowing this immense enslavement of entire continents for maintaining in life a very dead capitalism, with the death of millions people

  3. Balancing Power and Inequality has always been a problem for the Transnational Elite. Mass incarceration, various levels of martial law,  restrictive mobility between geographical zones- usual methods adopted to suppress the 99%. Police killings, warrantless electronic spying, random traffic checkpoints, airport security/no-fly lists, and Homeland Security compilations of databases on suspected resisters, nation-states are now nothing more than open prisons increasingly overseen by Private Military/Security Contractors. Allowing these private firms to circumvent any governmental moral legitimacy and to work in the shadow of neoliberal imperialism leads to a depletion of human rights and a lack of due process with after the fact labeling of the dead victims as being whatever suits the agenda of the Controllers.
    With roughly 625,000 employees in more than 120 countries spanning five continents, G4S is the second largest private-sector employer in the world. Some of its more important contractors are the governments of the United Kingdom, the United States, Israel, and Australia; in the private sector, it has worked with corporations such as Chrysler, Apple, and Bank of America.
