Israel & EU: Sinn Féin MEP quizzes funding for Israeli military research
EUROPEAN Commissioner Máire Geoghagan-Quinn has been asked by Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún how much EU taxpayers’ cash is going to companies likely to use the results of their EU-funded research to help Israel’s war machine.
Bairbre de Brún said:
“I have submitted a question to the European Commission asking how much funding has gone to companies which are likely to use the results of their EU-funded research for military purposes and asking the Commission to prevent further such funding while Israel fails to comply with international human rights standards.”
