UK Selective Care about Human Rights

On one hand, Britain on Friday 19/7 announced it was revoking export licences for equipment used by Egypt’s military and police amid concerns it could be used against protesters.

On the other hand, more than 3,000 current export licences for arms and military equipment worth more than £12bn have been approved for 27 countries classified by the Foreign Office as “of concern” because of their poor human rights record, a UK cross-party group of MPs reveals on Wednesday.

Countries for which significant sales have been approved include Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, China, and Zimbabwe.

Worth mentioning that Bahrain, in cooperation with Saudi Arabia and other Arab regimes, are involved in a brutal crackdown on peaceful protestors in the kingdom of Bahrain.
