10:02 am
and the u.a.e. but also of the parties supplying the coalition with weapons based on a multilateral treaty regulating arms sales that has been enforced as 2014 the arms trade treaty or the a.t.t. stipulates dot's a state party shall not authorize any transfer of conventional arms if it has knowledge at the time of authorization that the arms are items would be used in the commission of attacks directed against civilians objects or other war crimes. but whose weapons are used in these alleged crimes the filthies are keen to put forward their evidence. after air strikes the rebels scour the rubble for bomb remains to identify where they came from.
10:03 am

10:05 am
that. if you're in a place where they won't let you take photos but you want to get the g.p.s. and you the phone that has to can take g.p.s. coordinates sometimes if you just take a photo of the floor then you can get the g.p.s. coordinates at the secret site 25 members of the engine or not and i have come together for the 1st time in human rights watch experts are training them on how to gather evidence most prefer to remain anonymous for their own safety and that of their families. we're trying to do something like a human rights memory for the violations that happening in the ground to keep it for the future for in the accountability and legal steps. we are all. saved by accident. many of our foes are such as has detained more than once and want to know is receiving
10:06 am
a lot of firsts and we are facing a lot of hate campaigns from all parties to the conflict what is the 1st way you would try and find information about what happened with the air strike. was. ok. what do you mean when you say oh. ok. so my now you sound this point is a really good reminder the accuracy of the information collected on the ground is vital it will be used by international organizations in their reports or videos of the strike site they also talked about renditions and physical remains of the types of weapons that were used rates and physical evidence can be very very important. human rights watch has only been able to look into tasks that would be deemed
10:07 am
illegal under international law in $24.00 of those attacks it managed to pinpoint where the munitions came from. this is a u.k. manufactured weapon guided bomb produced in may 2015 and the reason the dates are important is because it's months after the cited coalition military campaign as well as human rights organizations in the u.s. and others are raising concerns about the way in which the coalition was operating in yemen so by continuing to sell weapons to saudi arabia or other members of the coalition that are likely to be used in unlawful coalition attacks in yemen the u.k. and france themselves those states are risking complicity in future unlawful coalition attacks. aware of this risk of complicity the european parliament's began calling for a suspension of arms sales to saudi arabia 2 years ago. 5 e.u.
10:08 am
member states have stopped sending more weapons to saudi arabia but does exclude the kingdom's biggest suppliers led by the united kingdom. since the outbreak of the war in yemen uki arms manufacturers have sold more than 5000000000 euros worth of weapons to saudi arabia this support has sparked an arm precedented wave of protest from both the british public and parliaments. british arm sales of sharply increased and british military advisers are directing the wall it cannot be right that her government this is pretty good aid cannot be right that her government is colluding in want to be united nations says' is evidence of war crimes. 3 months after that speech troubling revelations heightened the criticism over arms sales in the united kingdom arms

export permits are in theory granted on a case by case basis specific licenses must be approved by the government. and n.g.o.s the campaign against arms trade investigated the permits granted to export to saudi arabia. is good information and when i think of people who know about as well that was really help him. they discovered that the british government had loosened the licensing process to speed up arms exports we find out free freedom of information requests that bombs and missiles are going to be forces under open license open licenses are meant to be for goods which are not but which are not particularly sensitive then 5 these are some of the most sensitive exports that can be made we're talking about bombs we're talking but missiles in fact government has hidden for true value of u.k. arms exports to saudi arabia.
10:10 am
even a member of the u.k. parliament's committees on arms export controls said that he is powerless. as n.p.r. member of the committee has been able to know how much i mean nation have been sent open licenses to saudi arabia you know we have no idea because the government just does not record they are open tickets to send as much of that particular item to that particular country so saudi arabia in this case as that country wants and the company wants and that's a real problem because it could be hundreds of millions of rounds to saudi arabia the saudi case is an interesting difficult one because the amount of money involved
10:11 am
so you're always going to come up to the front page of ethics is economics. france faces the same dilemma during the saudi crown prince mohammed bin said man's last visit to paris president emanuel home was asked about the issue. the british one of the clare blessed with a security lobby so would. go on the existence of the many again the populace from . the french president is pursuing the same policy embraced by his predecessors on both ends of the political spectrum. between 20122017 the volume of weapons supplied to saudi arabia has tripled from 400000000 to 1300000000 euros. in 2015 when the war
10:12 am
intensified in yemen it didn't slow arms exports quite the contrary. it covers your bus your leisure yes even if you go to check on the french government has continued to approve arms exports to a country accused of possible war crimes by the un. this sparked uproar in the french parliament in the only other muffled about for it this is all i can juggle really obvious to me ruling the old enough also you just got going to devolve even having said. no only of our buddies are going to come with only by get the last leg claire 2 to vaunted damage done to deeds solf otoh is as you express

10:14 am
just going to get us in a final and if you show the best value it got a shock you don't like l.a. galaxy illustrate the actually another. threat. but how does france monitor the use of arms that it sells. like you. with the french government fail to respond to repeated questions on the matter. its sole official response to the issue of arms exports. i report to parliament issued every year. since you left do you visit down south to see that. seal so you get to the we can't tickle me down with the stuff with the stuff he was going to say but that would be a catalyst to nearly triple i suppose a point i made. because i don't necessarily journal the issue i went on i did offer

10:31 am
the me shortly only to propose to my own force of assuming that and then also there's an admission he says our song and that's how it was or did what he had to wait on i spent time with that quite a few ways as his role of almost nobody montel noble but because i was out. to increase transparency in july 2018 a deputy proposed creating a committee to investigate the use of french weapons in the war in yemen fabian good to fast oppose the move the committee of inquiry never got off the ground. one arguments used to justify the contracts these arms sales helped france maintain its strong geopolitical foothold in the region. the 2nd argument is a canard make the arms industry employs 165000 people in france.

10:33 am
. nothing seems to have slowed down the sales not the accusations of war crimes nor the thousands of civilian deaths not even the murder of a saudi dissident in october 2018. isn't that his good german question to treat best actually gets rid of answer that i did so to taste accurate history because i had to demarcate loudly so did. german i should be again it is true it goes something through the ice storm.
