Not to be confused with Merex AG, started by Gerhard Mertins and Otto Skorzeny.


New York Magazine wrote in 1991 that Arif Durrani, the only person imprisoned by the US for involvement in Iran-Contra apparently started a different arms dealing company, also called Merex Corporation, infuriating Gerhard Mertins, founder of the (German) Merex AG.[1]
