Arms produced in Slovakia are being supplied to countries under embargo, according to international human rights organisation Amnesty International.
The organisation claims that the armaments are being shipped legally to transit countries, from which they are sent to banned countries.
The international press reported one such case in 2000, when a consignment of arms was shipped from Slovakia to Zimbabwe via Bulgaria.
