G4S

 

Labelled by a UN report as a “disreputable company” “known for its violence against detainees”

G4S manages security at Ofer Prison in the Occupied Palestine Territories, provides services and equipment to run checkpoints and helps the Israeli prison imprison Palestinian political prisoners transfered to Israeli prisons in violation of the Geneva convention.

Under pressure G4S has accepted that it is unethical to support the occupation and that it has been behaving unethically:

“to ensure that G4S Israel business practices remain in line with our own business ethics policy, we would aim to exit the contracts which involve the servicing of security equipment at a small number of barrier checkpoints, a prison and a police station in the West Bank area,”
However, no contracts have yet been stopped and G4S has not indicated it will stop servicing prisons in Israel which illegally hold transferred Palestinian prisoners and are notroious for the systematic torture and ill treatment of Palestinian prisoners, including child prisoners.

Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Programme director with Defence for Children International Palestine Section, added “Israel uses solitary confinement against Palestinian children solely for interrogation purposes despite clear prohibitions under international law. Israeli military courts then use confessions obtained by interrogators through such coercive means to convict children. Justice, accountability and respect for human dignity don’t factor in. G4S and any other party that colludes with such a system is complicit in acts of injustice.”

The OECD is expected to question G4S on how it can justify, as a company from an OECD-member country, supplying or servicing kit that aids the occupation. (G4S contracts in Israeli occupied territories face major investigation: The Independent)
