After a shutdown due to the pandemic, EOS is back exporting its remote weapons systems to the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia despite both countries being accused of war crimes, with numerous UN reports detailing shocking human rights violations over the six years of the Yemen war.
EOS and the federal government have been asked repeatedly for proof that its weapons are not being used in Yemen. “Trust us,” is the standard response.
Assurances from a company chasing millions in profit and a government intent on catapulting Australia into the global top 10 of weapons exporters seem to be the best the public can expect in terms of accountability. When it comes to Australian weapons exports there is zero transparency.
