There is another thread running regarding this story which has been more than four years in the making.

Here is a link to the Union Leader article:

http://www.unionleader.com/news/busi...bcd8e14f0f.htm

"Three former managers of German gun maker Sig Sauer accused of illegally selling firearms to Colombia have reached a deal with prosecutors that will result in fines and no jail time, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

The men, who went on trial Tuesday in Kiel, Germany, allegedly sold the weapons to Colombia by funneling them from Germany to the company’s affiliate in New Hampshire, according to media reports.

They were responsible for the delivery of more than 47,000 SP 2022 pistols from Germany to the U.S. between April 2009 and April 2011, according to an indictment cited by German media outlet Kieler Nachrichten.

Prosecutors were demanding the weapons manufacturer pay a $14.8 million fine, according to AFP.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press cited a spokesman for the Kiel regional court who said defense lawyers, prosecutors and judges have agreed on suspended sentences and large fines for the men.

They include the current chief executive of Sig Sauer’s sister company in Newington, according to the AP report."

Hard to know what this will mean for SIG Sauer, Inc. (USA) or for Ron Cohen (CEO).
