Five Germans
Are Arrested

Bonn (JTA) — Five Ger-
man business executives
were arrested this week,
charged with illegally expor-
ting to Iraq machinery and
other equipment that could
improve its Soviet-made
Scud missiles and advance
its nuclear weapons pro-
The executives are from
the New Magdeburger
Machine Tool Factory in
Bielefeld, in northwest
Germany, and the H&H
company in Mannheim, in
the south-central part of the
If convicted, they would
face up to five years in
'Several other businessmen
were arrested in Bavaria
last week on similar
The latest arrests coincid-
ed with disclosures that Ira-
qi soldiers were trained in
what was formerly East
Germany for nuclear and
chemical warfare.
But most attention now is
focused on the five business
executives, since the pros-
ecution claims their illicit
exports continued until
"very recently."
Both companies allegedly
helped Iraq in its ambitious
program to build superguns
and other arms in addition
to improving the Scuds.
H&H has been cited
several times as one of the
German companies that
supplied Iraq with equip-
ment to build centrifuges for
the production of weapons-
grade enriched uranium.
The plant is located near
Munster, hometown of
Economics Minister Jurgen
Mollemann, who has been
accused in the parliament of
helping the company do
business with Iraq despite
the government's ban.
The reports about Iraqi
soldiers trained on German
soil appeared in several
newspapers this week. They
reportedly came from docu-
ments of the defunct Com-
munist People's Army.
The reports said East
Germany also sent Iraq
equipment to train soldiers
for situations where they
might be exposed to limited
amounts of poison gas or
nuclear radiation.
The training facility for
that purpose was located at
Storkow in what is now the
federal state of Branden-
burg. It so impressed the
Iraqis that they insisted on
having a duplicate assembl-
ed for them near Baghdad,
the reports said.
