On 31st January, CAAT is taking the government back to court! The government will face a judicial review into its decision to continue to allow arms sales to Saudi Arabia despite overwhelming evidence of serious violations of international humanitarian law in Yemen.
Saudi-led Coalition bombardments of Yemen have killed at least 8,983 civilians, and have contributed to a devastating humanitarian disaster in the country.
Over half of Saudi Arabia’s combat aircraft used for the bombing raids are UK-supplied.
UK-made equipment used includes: Typhoon and Tornado aircraft, Paveway bombs and Brimstone and Stormshadow missiles. In total the UK has supplied at least £23 billion worth of arms to the Coalition.
The UK government must be held accountable for their actions.
Despite a previous Court of Appeal ruling in CAAT’s favour - which found that the government’s licensing decisions on arms to Saudi Arabia were ‘irrational and therefore unlawful’ - the UK government continues to export arms for use in Yemen.
