Aviation authority's partner has military ties in UAE

Published måndag 19 mars kl 15.59

Sweden's civil aviation authority has come under fire for the military connections one of its business partners has in the United Arab Emirates.

Radio Sweden spoke with Sofia Boo, an investigative reporter at Swedish Radio, who helped uncover the ties.

She says that the authority has a business relationship through a subsidiary with a local company in the UAE.

That company - GAL Air Navigation Services - has links with the military and weapons industry in the UAE, which is currently involved in an armed conflict in Yemen.
