In conjunction with the British Government-funded wall in Calais, British officials are working with maritime consultants on methods to physically prevent illegal immigrants from boarding ships.

In the ongoing battle to protect Britain from hordes of illegal immigrants, security is being stepped up on board cross-channel ferries.

Refugees Boarding Ship
The extraordinarily risky business of boarding a ship illegally

Following a series of ongoing attempts by desperate fighting-age Muslim males to board UK-bound vessels in Calais, two specialist maritime consultancy firms named by this paper as Regional Armada Transportation Services and Federated International Sea Handlers, have been engaged by the Home Office to advise on solutions and deliver training. The Rochdale Herald understands these firms are charging the UK Government at a rate of up to £3,000 per day for each specialist consultant, and the programme has been active for around a year.

Perry L’Oiseau, who is listed as executive director of Regional Armada and also of its sister company Federated International, both registered to offshore addresses in the Cayman Islands, recently presented to Border Force officials. An unredacted copy of this confidential presentation has been obtained by the Herald from sources within the programme.

We understand the multi-million pound solution is centred on what the firm claims is “an entirely new and innovative method designed to prevent the physical ingress of unapproved vermin”, thus physically making it impossible for illegal immigrants to board ships.

When contacted, Mr L’Oiseau refused to comment, citing confidentiality agreements. He did, however, make the following statement: “Regional Armada’s highly experienced R&D has many years’ maritime security experience, backed up by Federated International’s unrivalled provision of trained personnel. We have come up with a new solution that has never been seen in port security before. ”

When our correspondent challenged Mr L’Oiseau that the solution was simply an age-old method of preventing rats from boarding ships in port, and further asked how he could justify having taken fees from the British Public estimated to having run into the hundreds of thousands of pounds for what was essentially a tin-foil plate, there was silence and then the call was disconnected.

The Rochdale Herald smells a rat.
