Olly Sprague is Amnesty’s Arms expert and for the first time ever, he was barred from the London Arms Fair this week. Maybe they didn’t like the ad campaign we made for them… Or maybe they had something to hide? At every one of the last five Fairs, we’ve uncovered illegal torture equipment and other illegal weapons being advertised, including leg irons, gang chains, electric-shock batons and cluster bombs.
It seems to be something of an own goal since if what was being sold was legitimate and in accordance with current regulations, then why ban a representative of Amnesty International?
So are they selling torture equipment or aren’t they?
