They have flown through Liberia on many occasions carrying Arms aimed for other countries, including this event in 2002 when they crashed. Since Tiramavia has rechartered in Moldova, they may have continued to ship arms into Africa.

read recent report concering arms shipments and Moldova:

"Although it is difficult to obtain exact figures, there is a general understanding that
Moldova retains significant SALW stockpiles and would welcome an opportunity to
sell at least some of them on the international market. There is therefore no guarantee
that the recent pattern [ of reduction in SALW ]of minimal transfers will continue."
