For the record

This site was set up to detail the judicial review of the decision to end the SFO investigation into BAE-Saudi arms deals.

Now the judicial review has finished, the site will be left online for the record. It is frozen as of February 2009.

For further information about corruption, visit The Corner House, or about BAE and the UK Government's arms dealing, visit CAAT.


The SFO-BAE-Saudi Judicial Review was brought by two organisations.

The Corner House

The Corner House aims to support democratic and community movements for environmental and social justice. It carries out research and analysis to further this aim, as well as engaging in advocacy work.
