AMMAN — At a meeting with UN officials on Tuesday, the Jordan Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS Jordan) movement as part of the global StopG4S campaign to end G4S complicity with the Israeli occupation, highlighted the UK-based security company’s involvement in Israel’s human rights violations against Palestinians.

During a meeting with Makarim Wibisono, special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, activists “urged the UN to uphold international law and its own UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and end its existing contracts with G4S until the firm stops its involvement in aiding and abetting Israel’s violations of human rights”, according to a statement from BDS Jordan.
