[PDF] Response to allegations made by War on Want against Erinys

In the past six months War on Want [WoW] has published a number of Press Releases (and written to the Foreign Secretary) making serious allegations against Erinys. These include accusations of human rights abuses, prisoner abuse, plunder of Iraqi oil and employing ‘apartheid-era’ South African paramilitaries…WoW have referred on several occasions…to employees of Erinys International opening fire on a taxi near Kirkuk, wounding three civilians…[T]he incident in Kirkuk is not an example of human rights abuse but of a professional response in self-defence against a potential vehicle-borne suicide bomb. WoW has made it clear that Erinys is not one of the companies it intended to accuse of being involved in unlawful killings.
