Forced labor in Xinjiang – charges filed in France against clothing manufacturer
Several non-governmental organizations (NGOs), together with an Uyghur woman, have filed a complaint in France against four multinational clothing companies. Specifically, the complaint concerns Inditex (owner of the brands Zara, Bershka, among others), Uniqlo, SMCP (Sandro, Maje, among others), and the sports shoe manufacturer Skechers. They allegedly profited from forced labor of the Muslim minority in China (China.Table reported). The complaint filed by the anti-corruption association Sherpa and the European Uyghur Institute (EUI) talks about "concealment of forced labor and crimes against humanity".
