Two companies have been ejected from the arms fair in east London for promoting illegal torture weapons. The firms are:
- French firm, MagForce International
- Chinese company, Tianjin MyWay International Trading
The action came after Green Party MP Caroline Lucas raised the issue in the House of Commons. The companies were promoting handheld projectile electric shock weapons, weighted leg cuffs, and stun batons, according to the website of Caroline Lucas.
No items can be bought and sold at DSEI. However, in displaying this marketing literature, Tianjin MyWay International Trading Co. and Magforce International have broken British law.
