By Bill Sizemore, Virginian-Pilot,  June 11, 2009: Suit: Blackwater operating illegally in Iraq after contract

The latest in a series of war-crimes lawsuits against Blackwater and its affiliated companies alleges that they continue to operate illegally in Iraq a month after the expiration of their lucrative security contract with the U.S. State Department.

The new lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, says Blackwater is still providing armed protection services in Iraq under the name Greystone Ltd. for the International Republican Institute, a nonprofit organization funded by the U.S. government.

 

Wikipedia - Blackwater site describes Greystone

Greystone Limited

A private security service, Greystone is registered in Barbados, and employs third country nationals for offshore security work through its affiliate Satelles Solutions, Inc.[71] Their web site advertises their ability to provide “personnel from the best militaries throughout the world” for worldwide deployment. Tasks can be from very small scale up major operations to “facilitate large scale stability operations requiring large numbers of people to assist in securing a region”. [71]

Greystone had planned to open a training facility on the grounds of the Subic Bay U.S. Naval Base, but those plans were later abandoned.[72]

However, the lawsuit gave Greystone’s address as 1650 Tysons Blvd, McLean, VA 22012, so Barbados may not be involved.
