Amnesty International criticises the Danish Government saying that it does not do enough to limit the unregulated weapons transportation. “We are already working on the international cooperation on limitations”, sounds the response from the Minister of Foreign Affairs Villy Søvndal and the Minister of Justice Morten Bødskov.
Last week, Amnesty International voiced a criticism of the Danish Government accusing it of not doing enough to prevent unregulated weapons transports. The NGO is happy about the level of control when it comes to import and export of weapons but thinks that the government could do a lot more when it comes to controlling the transportation of weapons between other countries carried out by Danish companies. One of the consequences of the unregulated transports is that weapons will fall into the wrong hands which might harm populations all over the world, the organisation says.

Euronav tells ShippingWatch that the company rejects this criticism.
