SLOVAK firms export arms to UN embargoed states, according to a recent issue of the British paper The Sunday Times.
The paper's undercover reporter-agent, under the name 'Brian Thomas', recently asked the local firm Petina International to prepare an offer for the supply of an unidentified number of missiles to be shipped to Rwanda. He had allegedly received a preliminary offer from Petina's business director, Michal Kvanta, offering the price of 27,000 British Pounds (€38,173) per Iglu missile.
The head of Petina International, Peter Peniaška, said that he would comment on the case after studying the details.
