Two men convicted of firearms smuggling in the UK

2 convicted for arms smuggling

Two men who smuggled an array for firearms and ammunition into the UK while on a tourist coach entering the UK from continental Europe were given lengthy prison sentences at Lewes Crown Court today. The firearms they smuggled included Czechoslovakian Skorpion automatic weapons. The concern is who they would have sold them to be it other organised crime groups or of even more concern if they were sold to persons involved in terrorism. The UK has strict firearms laws and if sold in the black market these weapons would have been sold for a high value. I discuss this on BBC Southeast Today (TV) this evening
