A follow up on HP's contract with the Israeli Ministry of Defence for the maintenance of the Basel system in checkpoints
Among other involvements in the occupation, HP Israel is the prime contractor of the Basel System, an automated biometric access control system, installed and maintained by HP in checkpoints throughout the occupied Palestinian territories. For more information, please visit Hewlett Packard page.
Earlier this month, Who Profits received an answer from the Israeli civil administration stating that Hewlett Packard (HP) prolonged its contract (which ended in the end of 2012) with the Israeli Ministry of Defence for the maintenance of the Basel system in checkpoints, until June 30 2013. The response further states that the contract will be extended until the end of 2013, after the Israeli state budget will be approved by the Israeli parliament - the Knesset.
Who Profits will continue to follow up on this issue.
