Codifying Genocide: UK Courts Allow Saudi Arms Sales Continue

UK Court Allows Saudi Arms Sales as May Suppresses Damning Report


July 11, 2017

The U.K. High Court has dismissed a challenge to the British government's arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The Campaign Against Arms Trade filed a court challenge that argued selling weapons to Saudi Arabia violates international law and Britain's own export licenses. Britain and the U.S. are supporting the devastating Saudi war on Yemen.

Andrew Smith of the Campaign Against Arms Trade, which brought the case, says the arms deal makes Britain complicit in Saudi Arabia's devastating bombing of Yemen.
