Pakistani stands at DSEi 2011 shut down.

Defence & Security Equipment international can confirm that the Pakistan Ordnance Factory stand and Pakistan’s Defence Export Promotion Organisation Pavilion have both been permanently shut down after promotional material was found on both containing references to equipment, which after close examination, was found to breach UK Government Export Controls and our own contractual requirements.  HM Government fully supports the decision by DSEi to close the stand and the Pavilion.

We are currently investigating how this breach of our compliance system occurred. However, we believe that the immediate action we have taken highlights our commitment to ensuring that all equipment, services, promotional material, documentation and anything else on display complies with domestic and international law.
