UK LAWYERS GROUP SAYS BRITISH AUTHORITIES ARE INVESTIGATING PWC FOR IGNORING CHARITIES' LINKS TO TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS




The British NGO UK Lawyers for Israel is reporting that PwC (Price Waterhouse Coopers) is under investigation by British authorities for its audits of the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) and Defence for Children International (DCI-P), which had links to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) a designated terrorist organization, and that those links were ignored by PwC.



Apparently, PwC breached the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises on Responsible Business  practices, by delibeately ignoring the link between the charities and the PFLP. According to the allegations, PwC was required to mitigate the impact of these terrorist links in its audits. The charities allegedly employed members of the PFLP, supported the members, finded the PFLP; some of the members of the UAWC were arrested on terrorism charges in Israel.  

Readers who wish to review the details can find them at the NGOs website. The URL is in the illustration at the beginning of the article.
