The British security firm G4S could be investigated by international authorities over allegations that it supplies equipment for Israeli military checkpoints in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The security giant could be questioned on how it can justify its contracts that assist the Israeli occupation, which is deemed illegal under international law. The exact sort of equipment G-4-S supplies to the Israeli military is unknown. The security firm employs six-thousand people in Israel and reportedly provides screening equipment for some military checkpoints in the West Bank. If G4S is found to have acted improperly, it would be its third scandal in less than two years. Earlier, the firm overcharged UK taxpayers for the electronic tagging of prisoners. It had also failed to provide enough security staff for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
