Six of my brother Security Contractors are in Indian Jail under weapons charges when their private anti-piracy ship allegedly strayed into Indian waters. These Six men were working a legal gig for a US based company called AdvanFort, they are all former British soldiers who honorably served their country and then took this gig to support themselves and their families, just as many of us here have done.
I have seen and been involved in many similar situations like this where a Security Contractor is arrested overseas as a direct result of their work duties. Most of the time they get thrown under the bus by their country or employer and end up spending years in jail and tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars before they are finally freed.
Unfortunately there is little we can do, but one thing you can do is Sign this petition calling on British Foreign Secretary William Hague to help free these six men – Let them see the numbers showing we will not let Security Contractors and former British soldiers get thrown under the bus and left to rot in some 3rd world shit hole prison.
And This Petition:
Also let the PMC who employs these men know the public will not stand for them turning their backs on these men. You can contact AdvanFort here:
