Campaign groups and legal experts have called on the UK to end arm sales to Saudi Arabia and its allies, warning that continuing to do so may be in violation of international law. In a statement issued this week, the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR) said British manufactured weapons sold to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt were being used to carry out abuses in Yemen and Libya.
Last week, South African radio broadcaster IONO fm interviewed Toby Cadman about the extent of the arms sales business. According to Mr. Cadman, these States have been committing atrocities and there must be more awareness about the consequences of arms sales. Trade cannot be prioritized over human rights violations.
