AI wants arms exports to Uganda banned

AMNESTY International (AI) in Slovakia is appealing to the government to reconsider permitting the export of weapons to Uganda, where human rights are being seriously violated, news wire TASR reported.

According to United Nations information, Slovakia exported nine cannons and six rocket launchers to Uganda in 2002, say AI representatives. At the same time, Uganda's army is providing military assistance to four military-political groups in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has been torn by civil war since 1998.
