Reacting to the latest report by the UN’s Group of Eminent Experts on Yemen, Oxfam’s Yemen Country Director Muhsin Siddiquey said:
“This damning evidence of indiscriminate attacks and serious violations of human rights by all sides in Yemen should shame all those who are fuelling this conflict by selling arms to the belligerents.
“This conflict had already created the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis in Yemen, decimating hospitals and schools, before coronavirus hit.
“The UK government’s decision to resume weapons exports to Saudi Arabia is indefensible when the UN is describing a consistent pattern of harm to civilians.
“Instead of putting arms sales first, the UK government should be urging all parties involved to commit to a nationwide cease fire and negotiations that will lead to a lasting peace.”
The report is available here. It highlights possible war crimes and violations of the Arms Trade Treaty.
