Today, 20th June, the Court of Appeal has ruled that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen are UNLAWFUL.
The Court found that the government had failed to properly assess whether there have been breaches of International Humanitarian Law.
This historic judgment means that the government must now stop issuing new arms exports licences and suspend existing licences to export arms to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen, and retake all decisions in accordance with the law.
These sales should never have been licensed in the first place. Even as schools, hospitals, weddings, and funerals have been bombed, the government has licensed the sale of billions of pounds of weapons for use in the conflict.
Even now the government is likely to resist. Every step of the way it has done all it can to keep the weapons flowing.
