Global arms trade operates above the law, says Andrew Feinstein
Director of Shadow World Investigations and author Andrew Feinstein said that global arms trade operates above the law.
Director of Shadow World Investigations and author Andrew Feinstein interviewed by journalist Erem Kansoy as part of a series of interviews organised by Peace in Kurdistan Campaign.
Feinstein said that "Abdullah Ocalan, like Mandela, has been targeted and prescribed not only by their own opponents - the Turkish government and the South African apartheid government - but also by other states, as the US for example which dealt heavy blows to the ANC."
Andrew Feinstein is a former ANC Member of Parliament in South Africa, a writer, campaigner and broadcaster. He served as an MP for more than seven years – on Parliament’s Finance Committee, as Deputy Chair of the country’s Audit Commission, and ANC member on the key financial oversight body, the Public Accounts Committee. He resigned in 2001 in protest at the ANC’s refusal to countenance an independent enquiry into a multi-billion dollar arms deal which was tainted by allegations of high level corruption. Andrew was recently named amongst the 100 most influential people working in armed violence reduction globally, and is the author of “The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade”.
