Israel/OPT: UN list of settlement businesses offers new hope for accountability
“Naming the businesses which profit in the context of this illegal situation sends a clear message from the international community that settlements must never be normalized. These companies are profiting from and contributing to systematic violations against Palestinians,” said Saleh Higazi, Amnesty International's Middle East Deputy Director.
“We call on companies to comply with their international responsibilities and stop doing business in the settlements.”
Amnesty International is calling for both OHCHR and the Human Rights Council to work in collaboration with other stakeholders to ensure that the list of companies is regularly updated and predictably financed..., to allow for continued scrutiny of businesses.
