    Any name for such a person, please?

    Hi,


    This, considered as crime, may be quite common almost in all countries, and what happens is you pay this guy and they'll do something illegal for you. Indeed you 'hire' them for a particular period of time. They may be hired to threaten, kill, and so on.

    Is there any special word used to refer to such people?

    Henchman (in probably the most common of its contemporary usages.)

    I'd use "hitman" only for someone you hire to kill someone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
