Arms trade protesters win court victory

On the 6th of January 2015 two local people stood trial, accused of disrupting last year’s Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) Arms Fair, now an regular occurrence in Cardiff.

The defendants were accused of throwing red paint at delegates entering the fair, damaging their luxury goods worth hundreds of hundreds of pounds.

However, on the day of the trial the prosecution collapsed entirely, resulting in a surprise victory as all charges were dropped. Full report on the SWA blog.
