Orange in the Occupied Palestinian Territory: the company should recognize its responsibility, the State shareholder should halt its support of Israeli settlements
Author: FIDH (Intl. Federation for Human Rights), Published on: 27 May 2015
Following the 6 May publication of a report entitled “Orange’s Dangerous liaisons in the Occupied Palestinian Territory”, AFPS, CCFD-Terre Solidaire, CGT, FIDH, LDH, Solidaires and the Collectif national pour une paix juste et durable entre Palestiniens et Israéliens (CNPJDPI) were pleased that on 26 May 2015, they were finally able to meet with Orange. They noted the fact that Orange recognises that having business relations with Partner poses risks to the company’s reputation. The representative of Orange recalled that an amendment was made in March 2015 to the brand-licensing agreement that would allow it to terminate the agreement in ten years. The civil society groups did not feel that this response was satisfactory. Nonetheless, the authors of the report asked Orange to publicly and explicitly state its decision to disengage and to denounce the human rights violations that Partner is involved in in Israeli settlements in the OPT.
