8 June 2011 – The Democratic Alliance believes that Jeff Radebe, who chairs the National Conventional Arms Committee must launch an urgent investigation into how converted Ratel infantry vehicles, previously operated by the South African National Defence Force, found their way to Yemen.

 

Over one hundred pictures of demonstrations in Yemen were recently published by Reuters and the Associated Press. The series includes a number of pictures of a converted Ratel infantry vehicle in Yemen, one of which can be viewed below. The picture, taken on 7 June 2011, depicts a converted Ratel infantry vehicle reportedly operated by defecting soldiers in Sanaa, Syria. 

 

The NCACC’s latest annual report records that R373.8-m worth of ‘conventional arms’ were sold to Yemen in 2010. Conventional arms exports to Yemen last year included R239.4 million worth of “Category A” conventional weapons, which are described as “major conventional implements of war that could cause heavy personnel casualties.”

 

Paramount Group converts SADF Ratels

While there’s no evidence that the Ratel infantry vehicles were exported directly from South Africa to Yemen, however: a number of surplus Ratel infantry vehicles, previously operated by the South African National Defence Force, were reportedly exported to Jordan by the Paramount Group.This was done in cooperation with the King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau, which produce a converted version of the Ratel infantry vehicle in Jordan.

 

Also, the infantry vehicle, depicted in the picture taken in Sanaa, Yemen, appears to be the converted version of the Ratel infantry vehicle produced by the Paramount Group and KADDB in Jordan.
