Francesco Vignarca | Rete Italiana Pace e DisarmoWatch full webinar here
Rete Italiana Pace e Disarmo and Saferworld organise a webinar to discuss the Arms Trade Litigation Monitor (ATLM) and some examples of legal challenges to irresponsible authorised arms transfers.
Francesco Vignarca discusses the decision of the judge concerning the criminal investigation into the liability of UAMA officials and RWM Italia S.p.A for the export of arms to Saudi Arabia and UAE that were used in Yemen, which found the exports to be in violation of at least Articles 6 and 7 of the ATT and yet did not consider the suspects prosecutable.
