Brazil Defense Ministry: Taurus arms exports not cleared for re-export

BRASILIA, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Defense Ministry said on Monday it had authorized gun maker Forjas Taurus SA to export arms to Djibouti in recent years, but that those weapons could not be legally re-exported to other countries.

Reuters reported and Taurus subsequently confirmed on Monday that Brazilian prosecutors charged two of its former executives with shipping guns to a known Yemeni arms dealer who allegedly funneled them from Djibouti into his country’s civil war.
