The UK organization, War on Want, calls on G4S to end its cooperation in Israel’s prison system with the campaign End G4S’s complicity in Israel’s prison system (#StopG4S) following their Justice for Palestine projects, and very related with ControlPMSC campaign.

Nowadays, G4S, the British private security company, is facing an investigation by international authorities into its alleged activities in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. This panel of legal experts concluded that G4S may be criminally liable for its activities in support of Israel’s illegal Wall and other violations of international law.

In 2007,  G4S signed a contract with the Israeli Prison Authority to provide security systems and other services for major Israeli prisons. On 23 February, Palestinian Arafat Jaradat was pronounced dead at Israel’s Megiddo prison, in the wake of his alleged torture at the Al Jalameh interrogation centre. G4S provides security systems and the central control room at Megiddo prison and security equipment for Al Jalameh.

Beyond Israel’s prison system, the company also provides equipment and services to Israeli checkpoints in the West Bank that form part of the route of Israel’s illegal Wall and to the terminals isolating the occupied and besieged territory of Gaza. Moreover, it signed contracts for equipment and services for the West Bank Israeli Police headquarters and to private businesses based in illegal Israeli settlements.
