Britain’s leading arms fair was used to promote illegal torture equipment and cluster bombs.

A stall at the Defence and Security International fair (DSEi) in London’s Docklands promoted equipment by a company called CTS-Thompson that included an “enhanced transport restraint system”. This combines chains and cuffs.

The fair was also used to promote cluster bombs.

Two companies, Pakistan Ordnance Factory and Pakistan’s Defence Export Promotion Organisation, displayed promotional material for artillery-launched cluster munitions.
