Sanctions-breakers arrested :
On 18 March, Milan Rai and Martin Thomas were arrested and questioned by Customs on suspicion of attempting to illegally export children's antibiotics to Iraq on 10 February. The medicines were seized; Milan and Martin took children's vitamins from Jordan into Iraq instead. If prosecuted and convicted, Milan and Martin face up to five years in prison.
Voices in the Wilderness UK :
A new group has been formed to continue hand-delivering medicines to sick children in Iraq, breaking US/UK/UN sanctions. Voices in the wilderness uk will organise delegations to Iraq, educate people about the effects of sanctions, and defend anyone who is prosecuted.
