In two weeks’ time, the High Court in Britain will consider a case that could set a vital precedent and be instrumental in changing British arms export policy.

On February 7-9, following an application by Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), judges will be examining the legality of arms exports to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen.

For almost two years now, Saudi forces have inflicted a brutal and devastating bombing campaign on the people of Yemen.

 

Schools, hospitals, and homes have been destroyed in a bombardment that has killed 10,000 people and inflicted a humanitarian catastrophe on one of the poorest countries in the region.
