Arms fair brings human rights abusing regimes and dealers together

OFFICIALS from human rights abusing regimes and arms dealers gathered at the Security and Policing arms fair in Farnborough yesterday.

More than 60 international delegations are attending the fair including reps from some of the world’s most repressive regimes such as Bahrain, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Chile and Turkey.

The fair is hosted by the British government and will run until tomorrow.

Some of the world’s biggest arms companies, including BAE Systems and Leonardo, will meet with the government, military and police delegations.

Buyers will be able to get their hands on technology for spying, surveillance, repression of protesters and militarised borders.
