South Africa sold Rifles to Libya, Govt. denial exposed

Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu...refuted suggestions that South Africa has sold sniper rifles to Libya.
"Have we sold any sniper rifles to Libya? Not that I’m aware of," she said in response to a question during a media briefing at Parliament....On August 6, 2009, NCACC chairman Jeff Radebe had "admitted that Libya has purchased various weapons kinds from South Africa"..."However, in addition to this, we understand that more than 100 sniper rifles and more than 50,000 rounds of ammunition were exported to Libya in late 2010." This raised a serious question because there had been multiple reports that security forces used sniper rifles to fire on protesters in Libya....
---Full report at Business Day---
Suddenly the transfer of so-called "sniper rifles" becomes an issue because Col. Khadaffi's security men are allegedly using these firearms against internal opposition?. Hypocritical political correctness from SA leftists in power supporting their freedom hating pals in Libya...(S9)
