Motorola replies to divestment group


Motorola responded to a U.S. group that demanded that it end its sale of products to Israel’s army and settlements.

The campaign launched last month by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation singled out the sale of fuses for air-launched bombs; communication devices for the army; and radar devices to secure Israel’s security barrier and settlements.

“As a well-respected and responsible corporate citizen, all of Motorola’s global activities are conducted in strict accordance with U.S., local, country and all other applicable laws, as well as our own code of business conduct,” Motorola said in a March 11 reply.

Motorola said it periodically reviewed its business conduct. “Such a review is currently being conducted and we plan to post the revised documents to our website when our review is completed,” it said.
