Dereliction of Duty

Corruption Watch’s newest report tells the story of how a a UK-registered company, CAS-Global Ltd, bought a second hand naval vessel (the KNM Horten), and exported it into the hands of a company controlled by a former Nigerian Warlord – via the UK. Based on newly obtained documents, the report reveals the reasons why the UK government approved the export license for the deal, and outlines why this decision was flawed. It concludes with recommendations as to how the UK’s arms export licensing regime can be reformed to properly take corruption into account.
