Bredenkamp raided by UK Serious Fraud Office

October 22, 2006

The home and offices of John Bredenkamp, the UK-based arms dealer implicated in a 2002 UN report on illegal weapons sales to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and named in Titanic Express, have been raided by the Serious Fraud Office, according to the Daily Telegraph. Last month, the Sunday Times ran an exposé on another UK-based businessman named in the book, Andrew Smith of Avient Air, who was implicated in the same UN report, and whose company now stands accused of participating in indiscriminate bombing raids in the east of the DRC.
