Document Type


This case concerns 2 x licences no. 2178/031476 and 2178/031479 to FN Herstal for delivery to Saudi Arabia of smooth bore weapons. The Court rejects the first two arguments, but finds it necessary to examine the third argument, namely the alleged violation of criteria 6 of the Common Position, and reopens the proceedings for licence no. 2178/031476 on this basis.
