Contract for Naval gun justified

UK based firm Emdigital Ltd’ petition was dismissed against the Israeli firm Elbit Systems for supply of naval guns to India, by the Delhi High Court. The British firm alleged the Israeli firm cannot sell the guns as it was manufactured by a US company and it required parliamentary approval according to the law of that country.

The Israeli firm denied it stating that it had obtained sanction. The High Court explained that according to US law, the second stage of approval could be sought after obtaining the contract and there was nothing in the Arms Export Control Act which barred the Israeli firm from selling the guns to India.
