Veolia Environnement response re article alleging it is complicit in Israel's violations of international law

First, regarding the Jerusalem Light Rail Tramway, it is worth remembering that the tramway project came into being following the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993, when there was a prospect of a peaceful settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and was regarded as a “peace tramway”...-We do not seek to service the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories or to pursue business activity in the territories, and our limited activities are in the process of being reduced (sale of the Tovlan landfill).-No recognized French or international court has ruled that our activities were in breach of international law...and we eagerly await the decision of the Versailles Court of Appeals. -We believe that our company is indeed acting in a socially responsible way, and doing its best to provide essential services to all populations, Jews and Arabs alike, even in the difficult context of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
