In a series of articles Sueddeutsche Zeitung uncovered how Germany's oldest weapons manufacturer - Sig Sauer - illegally delivered weapons to Colombia, Brasil, Iraq, and assumingly Pakistan and India. After reporting these findings, Sig Sauer's office was searched and the company was served a temporary export ban. In the weeks since, the investigators have also searched the offices of the overseeing holding company and the private homes of the two owners.
