No prosecution for dodgy military export

Re the No WARP! Update NZ company involved in suspect military export to Israeli Defence Force, the following letter was received today from Marian Hobbs, Minister for Disarmament and Arms Control.

20 May 2005

You may recall that I wrote to you on 11 April, in response to your letter [of 17 February] alleging possible breaches of export control regulations by Oscmar and asking the government to investigate these. You asked to be kept informed of the progress of the investigation.

The New Zealand Customs Service has now completed its investigation into the allegations you made. They have found there is no case to answer, and therefore no further action will be taken.

Yours sincerely,
