G4S lost its tender securing the European Parliament in BrusselsApr 2012
From the Coalition of Women for Peace April 2012 Newsletter
G4S also held a tender to provide security to European Parliament buildings in Brussels. Civil society and MEPs expressed concern over G4S's human rights record, demanding to review its contract. This February, EP President Mr. Martin Schultz thanked CWP for its report and stated that "there was no legal basis to revoke their contracts with G4S", while acknowledging that European companies should adhere to international law, including in their overseas operations.
The official EU tenders' website indicates that G4S was replaced by another security company (SECURITAS) and is no longer providing services to EU parliament buildings. CWP wishes to congratulate the EU for eliminating its contractual relations with one of the pillars of the Israeli occupation industry.
