Share this article

UK company G4S has sold security services and equipment to public and private actors linked to human rights violations in Israel and in the Occupied Territories.

The UK-based company G4S has been selling, through its Israeli subsidiary, security services and equipment to Israeli checkpoints in the Occupied Territories, to prisons allegedly abusing Palestinians, and to private businesses in settlements.

The company rejects the accusations, but has announced prospected terminations of key contracts.
