*R (on the application of Campaign Against Arms Trade) v Secretary of State for International Trade (Amnesty International and others intervening)

Military – Equipment and technology. There was no clear risk that there might be serious violations of international humanitarian law, in its various manifestations, such that United Kingdom's arms sales to Saudi Arabia should be suspended or cancelled under government policy. Accordingly, the Divisional Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's continuing failure to suspend export licences and to continue to grant new licences.
