[I]n April 1999, Moldovan customs officials confiscated a Ukrainian cargo plane at the airport in Chisinau, Moldova, carrying 5,000 undeclared Hungarian-made pistols.
The original flight plan followed a route from Budapest, Hungary on to Chisinau, followed by a stopover in Bulgaria and finally on to Yemen, where the weapons would be transferred to the Yemeni Defence Ministry.
However, Moldovan officials suspected that the end-user certificate was false and that the actual destination of the guns was to be Yugoslavia (Demidetsky, 2000).
