Defion Internacional

 

Headquartered in Lima, Peru, Defion Internacional is a private military company that supplies specialist security staff who are mostly recruited from Latin America. These personnel are often then contracted out to other companies; in fact, Defion Internacional first became known when it trained recruits to work with Triple Canopy in Iraq. Defion Internacional has bureaus in Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Iraq and Dubai, and the firm specializes in training bodyguards, drivers, and logistics and administrative personnel. Latin American security staff stationed in the Middle East have been described as “guns for hire.” Moreover: “A Peruvian in Baghdad will not panic if he has to face a blast or a blackout because he has already experienced that on the streets of Lima,” Defion Internacional administrative manager Alejandro Fernandez has explained.
