Bill Baisey is the CEO and owner of the Eastern Securities or E Sec, which is the company involved in the killing of at least 24 explosive detection dogs in Kuwait on June 17, 2016. The dogs were killed after the contract with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) was cancelled. People close to Eastern Securities state that the dogs were killed inhumanely and were a direct retaliation to the cancellation of the contract despite E Sec’s claims of a necessary cull. This incident has raised concerns over his previous contracts and whether or not he has held contracts with the US government in the past.

Possible Evidence of Human Trafficking, Fraud, and Bribery

Upon further investigation of Bill Baisey, CEO of E Sec, there is potential evidence of his involvement in human trafficking in IraqNajlaa International Catering Services is under the umbrella corporation of Eastern Solutions,Inc. (E Sec is under this umbrella as well). Eastern Solutions is registered in Louisiana, under Nidal A. Balbeisi (reportedly Bill Baisey’s brother). Nidal owns multiple restaurants in Louisiana and Bill Baisey sits on the board of the Balbesi Investment Group LLC.

Najlaa International Catering Services was a subcontractor for KBR which was responsible for providing DoD DFACs (dining facilities) with workers (TCN- third country nationals) in Iraq. Approximately one thousand south Asian workers claimed that they were lured to Iraq by Najaf International Catering Services but upon arrival were housed in windowless warehouses, had long delays in their pay, no protective equipment, and lived in substandard conditions. As a result of their treatment, they were unable to return to their home country. Workers also stated that the company seized their passports which was against the contracting regulations set by the US government. The dog handlers in Kuwait also claimed that E Sec took their passports as well which stranded them in Kuwait.

When the workers complained to KBR and the US government, their concerns were initially unanswered. It wasn’t until the workers protested, did KBR and the US government pay attention to the their claims. KBR contacted Baisey on the findings of their inspection following the protests:

KBR manager William Young told Baisey that conditions at several Najlaa sites “are endangering performance of the Subcontracts and jeopardizing the lives of all personnel.” Young also stated that unless Najlaa could correct the deficiencies within 10 days, “KBR may terminate these subcontracts for default.”
