German court annuls de facto armoured vehicles export ban to Saudi Arabia

BERLIN, Dec 3 (Reuters) - A German court on Tuesday annulled a de facto export ban on a producer of armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia which the government had imposed following the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The German government authority for exports control had failed to meet formal requirements when it withdrew an export permission for 110 armoured vehicles to the Royal Saudi Land Forces, an administrative court in Frankfurt said.

The court did not identify the company that had brought the case and said the ruling was not yet definitive and could still be appealed.

The economy ministry, which supervises the exports supervision office, was not immediately available for comment.
