ACAB filed a legal challenge to prevent the Bahri Tabuk from taking delivery of its cargo.
The Paris-based Christians for the Abolition of Torture (ACAT) group sought to block the loading of what it said were munitions onto the "Bahri Tabuk" in Fos-sur-Mer and filed a legal challenge to prevent the vessel from taking delivery of its cargo. "The Bahri Tabuk is due to load French weapons for Saudi Arabia, one of the main belligerents in the Yemeni conflict. ACAT is mobilising and calling on civil society and local networks to prevent these munitions from going to Saudi Arabia". Another Saudi ship the "Bahri Yanbu", left France's northern coast two weeks ago without a cargo of weapons after dockers threatened to block its arrival in the port of Le Havre. ACAT had also filed a legal challenge to stop that consignment being loaded, arguing that it contravened a United Nations treaty because the arms might be used against civilians in the Yemeni conflict. The "Bahri Tabuk" docked in the afternoon of May 28, 2019, and was due to load its cargo on MAy 29. The cargo had initially been due to include electrical transformers. The online investigative site Disclose said on MAy 28 the cargo to be loaded at the port of Marseille-Fos included munitions for Caesar howitzers. Rights groups accuse Riyadh of using the French weapons against civilians in Yemen. Defence Minister Florence Parly had no information on the shipment. A representative in France for the Saudi shipping company involved denied any plans for a weapons shipment, saying the vessel was picking up only electricity production units from Germany's Siemens, for civil use.
German bombs loaded in undercover operation
The "Bahri Tabuk" loaded 18 containers at Cagliari around Dec 9, 2016, in an undercover operation under supervision and protection of special forces, firefighters and technicians. Activists found out, that the containers were loaded with Germany-made bombs to be used in air strikes against Yemeni rebels. The ship sailed bound for Port Said in the evening of the same day, ETA Dec 13, 2 p.m.
