star this property answer text <p>The central issue in relation to military exports to the Saudi-led coalition in the context of the conflict in Yemen is Criterion 2c of the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria (the Government will not grant an export licence if there is a <em>clear risk</em> that the item <em>might</em> be used in the commission of a serious violation of IHL).</p><p> </p><p>Criterion 2c is a prospective and predictive exercise as to whether there is a clear risk <em>in the future</em>. Although the Government has always considered the historic record in respect of IHL, past instances are only a part of the picture in relation to Criterion 2c.</p><p> </p><p>The Court of Appeal judgment concerns reaching findings on IHL in specific incidents in the past.

We are now considering the implications of the judgment for decision-making.</p> more like this
