On 29th November, Bellingcat reported on its EU Arms Project, a collaboration project which has documented, using open source, how European countries and companies have breached their own, and international, laws dozens of times. It has documented where European arms end up after their export licences have been granted. It reports that the latest project shows where Spain has approved export licences for arms sold to countries such as Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Nicaragua, and how those arms have been used in the facilitation of oppression or human rights violations.
