Rheinmetall: Export to Qatar

The German government recently condoned the sale of 62 tanks and 24 howitzers to Qatar in a € 1.89 million deal. Rheinmetall´s total contribution to Qatari military systems is worth around € 475 million. Amnesty International recently condemned Qatar for committing multiple human rights violations, particularly for placing constraints on people´s freedom of expression and cases of torture.
