Individual complainant vs. Danish subsidiary in Israel

Case overview

Date filed 6 December 2013
Current status Rejected
Issue Providing products and services to Isreali prison system
Summary of the case In December 2013, the Danish NCP received a request for review by an individual alleging that a Danish subsidiary of a UK multinational enterprise had breached the concepts and principles, and human rights provisions of the Guidelines in Israel by its business relationship with the Israeli company who provided products and services to the Israeli prison system.
Developments/Outcome The NCP undertook an initial assessment of the specific instance but concluded that it did not merit further consideration because the subject of the complaint is not a supplier, sub-supplier, purchaser, business partner or parent company of the company in Israel. Thus the Danish company accused could not be directly linked with the Israeli company and its business activities.

In concluding the specific instance the Danish NCP recommended that the individual raise the issue with the UK NCP who could be better suited to provide help.
