Summary

We present here the case of the illegal export of G36 rifles of the German company Heckler & Koch to Mexico from 2006 to 2008 and of the suspected acts of corruption in which German and Mexican authorities are involved. The text attempts to reconstruct a case which attracted little attention in the Mexican media, but had re-current impact in the German society, since this topic has been present time and again for 3 years in the headlines of newspapers, in t.v. programs and were cover stories of magazines. This text is also a call to the Mexican society to document and pursue those who profit from violence, whose traces can also be found outside Mexico.
