Halliburton Sued For Human Trafficking


www.blacklistednews.com

13 Nepali men: recruited and held against their will for 13 months in a scheme perpetrated by Halliburton & its Jordanian contractor, according to a lawsuit filed in California federal court.

Hired as kitchen staff, once they arrived in Jordan their passports were seized & they were dispatched to Iraq. Tragically, as the men were being transported to Iraq, a car containing 12 of the men was stopped by an insurgent group, The 12 men in the car were taken hostage and executed.

What a sad story. A handful of poor folk in Nepal (as if they didnt have enough trouble with the Chinese) looking hard for work, no doubt trying to support a family, are recruited and hired to work in a kitchen in Jordan.

But when they arrive their passports are taken and they are shipped to Iraq for work. But along the way poor security allows their convoy to be captured and they themselves are killed.

How can we allow KBR, Halliburton, Dick Cheney, and all other associated parties to remain free and unaccountable?

They should all share the fate of these poor Nepalese workers.

I'm glad they sued. With 60% (or whatever it is) of Iraqis out of work, there was no possible reason for them to bring bodies in for even CHEAPER labor. Those people and their focus on stockholder hissy fits and profit margins over humans...well they should be the ones shot. It's disgusting.

Was it Halliburton or the Jordanian Contractor? From the article is sounds like it was the Jordanian Contractor. Not making excuses, I just like unspun facts.

I found it in the first search. It was Halliburton subsidiary KBR and its Jordanian subcontractor, Daoud & Partners who did this. Apparently no longer connected to Halliburton from what I can tell.

Source for quotes below -

Thirteen Nepali men were recruited and held against their will for thirteen months in a human trafficking scheme engineered and perpetrated by Halliburton and its Jordanian contractor, according to a lawsuit filed yesterday in California federal court....

...This spring, a judge at the Department of Labor ordered KBR’s contractor, Daoud, to pay $1 million to the families of 11 of the victims. “The Inspector General for the United States Department of Defense investigated and confirmed the facts related to the fate of the 12 men, which led to increased enforcement of anti-trafficking measures by the United States,” the lawfirm said in a release....

...KBR was spun off from Halliburton in a 2006 IPO, and formally disengaged from the company in 2007...


Sounds like Halliburton dropped them like a hot potato.

It is too bad the Iraqi Insurgents can not be held liable
What monsters killing simple workers like that.

They spun it off for PR reasons. I bet they are still connected though.

Why would you blame insurgents? They live in a country that Halliburton helped break. I bet they feel anyone being shipped in are up to no good and are fair game.

Why would you defend Halliburton. Defend people damn it not big corporations!

Shame on our country for creating a situation that spawns monsters like that.

wasnt there a time when dick cheney was no longer connected to Haliburton and yet somehow, he still is? I agree for the need of unspun facts, but these peoples hands are so dirty that now i need more than one degree of seperation to see them as innocent. it seems they have many backdoor connections and if even the vice president can claim no connection to them and vice/versa while still raking in tons of money from your position with them, well then 'connection' are no longer good enough to clear these evil ANTI-american globalist psychos!!

12 cooks? Lol... Cmon who would want a cook from Nepal. I am aware of people from Nepal are used for psy work. I could see them being taken to a facility in Iraq. Either they were unlucky bastards or just found out.

Possible uses for Monks.

1. Remote Viewing
2. Torture. They can harm the body without tools
3. Non Verbal interrogation, reading thoughts and energy field

Good Luck

So you are a culinary expert now are you? I personally have heard that Nepalese chefs can make some fine meals.

Not sure if I'm taking this the wrong way but it sounds as if you are making a mockery of the deaths of these poor people.
