SAO PAULO, Sept 29 Brazil is reviewing its
procedures for controlling arms exports, Defense Minister Raul
Jungmann said on Thursday, when asked about an investigation
into the sale of guns made by Forjas Taurus SA that
allegedly violated a U.N. embargo.
Earlier this month, Taurus confirmed a Reuters report of
charges against two former executives who allegedly sold weapons
to a known Yemeni arms trafficker accused of funneling them into
his country's civil war. Jungmann said the review was part of a
"periodic" update of arms export regulations.
