“G4S shares plunge after Orlando killer is named as employee”
Omar Mateen, who killed 50 people at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida, was an employee of international security systems giant G4S.
G4S Secure Solutions had employed Marteen as an armed private security guard in Florida since 2007. Marteen possessed both a security officer firearms license and a statewide firearms license.
The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has long campaigned against G4S for administering security systems at Israeli prisons, detention centers and checkpoints – all sites of grave Israeli human rights violations against Palestinians.
Since news of Marteen’s employment with the company emerged, G4S’s shares have reportedly plummeted.
