Conflict Armament Research has published a new report, based on 3 years of fieldwork, which shows how military equipment has reached all sides of South Sudan’s civil war: through the intermediation of neighbouring states, through networks of brokers and intermediaries, and via air and land logistics. South Sudan’s warring sides signed the peace agreement in September to end a 5-year civil war that has killed nearly 400,000 people. Amongst the findings of the new report are that a key broker of the latest deal to end South Sudan’s civil war diverted European weapons to South Sudan’s military despite an EU arms embargo, and a US military jet ended up deployed in South Sudan in possible violation of arms export controls. Uganda bought arms and ammunition from at least 3 EU members — Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia — that were diverted to South Sudan’s military and armed allies in Sudan. A network of “jointly owned Ugandan and US companies — controlled by UK, Israeli, Ugandan, and US nationals — procured a military jet from the US and an Austrian-made surveillance aircraft.
