Companies Investigated for Violating Libya Arms Embargo

By John Lee.

The Wall Street Journal reports that a new UN report on the violations of the Libya arms embargo was submitted to the UN Security Council in January.

UN investigators claim that two US-based companies broke the embargo in 2011.

It also claims that the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Turkey shipped military equipment in 2014 and 2015.

Ukrainian companies and an Italian middleman working with a UK-based Libyan national are also under investigation over potential violations.

The report is expected to be made public soon.
