PRESS STATEMENT: UNIT’s New York Operation Expansion

Embargoed till 08:00 31/03/05

Major A Highway is to lead up UNIT’s New York Liaison Office, taking on a revised role that sees the organisation coordinating it’s pan-territorial activities into a pivotal single site operation.

“I’m thrilled,” explained Major Highway. “It’s a fantastic time for UNIT to be increasing our New York presence. In the last few years we’ve played a major part in more traditional threats to national security, but there’s been a sudden increase in the interest in our full range of activities, solutions and counter-measures.

As such, it’s important to have someone on the ground in the General Assembly, briefing-up members on occurring developments, and providing a single-call solution that allows members to be instantly appraised of non-national threats.”

The Major also paid tribute to his predecessor, Major C Jones. “Her loss was a surprise to all of us. She was an old and valued friend, and it was a shock to all of us when she and her colleagues were lost in the Jersey Tollgate Situation. It’s impossible to replace her, and rather than try stepping into a role that she handled so well for so many years, I’m pleased that UNIT have rolled out this new system.”
