United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner: UN rights office issues report on business activities related to settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory:

[The UN Human Rights Office on Wednesday issued a report on business enterprises involved in certain activities relating to settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, in response to a specific request by the UN Human Rights Council, contained in a March 2016 resolution, that mandated the Office to produce a database of business enterprises involved in such activities.*]

[Of the 112 business entities identified in the report, 94 are domiciled in Israel and 18 in six other States.]

[The report makes clear that the reference to these business entities is not, and does not purport to be, a judicial or quasi-judicial process. While the settlements as such are regarded as illegal under international law**, this report does not provide a legal characterization of the activities in question, or of business enterprises’ involvement in them.]

[To see the report on business activities related to settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory visit the Human Rights Council website, and scroll down to A/HRC/43/71.]
