star this property answer text <p>The Government is carefully considering the implications of the Court of Appeal judgment of 20 June for decision making. We disagree with the judgment and are seeking permission to appeal. While we do this, we will not grant any new licences for exports to Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners (UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and Egypt) for possible use in the conflict in Yemen.</p><p> </p><p>Extant licences are not immediately affected by this judgment but decisions about these licences are remitted to the Government to reconsider in the light of the judgment. The Campaign Against Arms Trade did not seek an Order to suspend licences and the Court has not ordered their suspension.

As Saudi Arabia is neither an embargoed destination nor a destination subject to stricter transit controls under the Order, a transhipment licence would not be required for military goods provided certain conditions are met. These conditions are principally that the goods were legally exported from the country of export (in this case, Belgium) and that they remain in the UK for a period of less than 30 days.</p><p> </p><p>We have no reason to believe these conditions were not met and therefore no transhipment licence was required.</p> more like this
