    Good Evening, A friend of mine has been offered a position with DESERT ROAD SECURITY, BASRA. Just wondered if anyone has any info, good/bad, and obviously do they pay on time?

    Sorry never heard of them and been in Basra for 2 years now, seems to be a uplift of new or otherwise unknown outfits and seemingly they mostly have deep local connections (for better or worse)
    I'll ask around as im on leave tho and re post if i get some news.

    They've been operating for quite a while now, in and around the Zubayr/Rumilyah Oilfields and around Basrah city, Iraqi owned, ex pats in key positions , TL's etc No probs with their visa's etc as they aren't seen as the infidel :-)
