Police raid Heckler & Koch in bribery probeHmm, I wonder, and this is just pure speculation on my part, if there are any papers relating to Gun Walker...
Police have raided the headquarters of German gun maker Heckler & Koch as part of an investigation into illegal gun sales to the Mexican government.
State police officers conducted the Thursday raid at the company’s Oberndorf corporate headquarters in Baden-Württemberg, searching the building and several nearby private homes for information about bribes the company is alleged to have paid to Mexican officials.
Those bribes are said to have resulted in weapons contracts with authorities in Mexico.
The company, which produces many of the world’s most popular small arms for police and military use, has been dogged by investigations into its Mexican operations for years.
Last December police searched its headquarters after it was accused of bribery and selling arms to Mexican states where serious human rights abuses had taken place.
It later said it never sold weapons directly to Mexican states, but rather directly to Mexico’s federal government.
