Peace researcher warns Patria on light arms salesTuesday, 20 March 2012
A researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri) has warned the Finnish defence company Patria of the problems surrounding the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia.
Pieter Wezeman from the Institute says a clear risk exists that Finnish-made Nemo mortar launching systems are used against the public to suppress civil unrest.
Patria received a government licence to sell the Nemo system to Saudi Arabia last December.
The company did not want to speculate on the issue when questioned by YLE.
