THREAD: How is one of Europe's most famous companies helping Turkey sustaining an airbridge between Turkey and Libya, despite a UN arms embargo? #A400M #EUarms #Airbus
We analysed flight radar data and confirmed at least 11 flights with Turkish’ A400Ms between Turkey and Libya in the period between June 24 and August 21.
France, Germany & Italy are threatening sanctions against those violating the UN embargo for Libya. But #Airbus is providing critical services to the Turkish A400M fleet, enabling it to likely breach that same embargo.
The support scheme includes maintenance in Getafe (ESP), maintenance in Turkey, training for all pilots involved (incl. regular refresher training) & a large maintenance deal with OCCAR an inter-governmental organisation that explicitly include Turkey as a customer nation.
Airbus support for Turkey's A400M makes EU state & corporate actors responsible for violating their obligations under the UN embargo to prevent direct or indirect violations (Art. 9 of UNSC Resolution 1970) says @ValentinaAzarov (@GLAN_Law)
An investigation from our #EUarms newsroom with important contributions by @leone_hadavi @y_vdw @bash_deeb and our partners @ARTEjournal (@maudjullien), Stern magazine (@hmtillack @sternde ), ARD Report Munchen (@philipp_Gruel) and El Diario (@polpareja @eldiarioes)
