Is Latvia Selling Arms To Somali Pirates?

Posted by Info on 27/02/2010

The Security Council imposed an embargo on supplying arms to the African nation in 1992 due to the lack of stability and ongoing violence in Somalia.
An organization of hackers has published online copies of documents, which they claim prove that Latvia supplied arms to Somalia in violation of a UN Security Council resolution.
Earlier the same group published other documents, including tax returns of police officers and other officials and detailed accounts of salaries on a big Latvian bank.

The group says they make the information public to expose the corruption and greed of the authorities and have announced that more compromising publications will follow.
No official comment on the accusations has come so far.
