KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) -Rights group Liberty Shared has asked United States customs authorities to investigate the Malaysian operations of American tyre maker Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co over accusations of abusive labour practices, the group told Reuters. The Hong Kong-based anti-trafficking group said its June petition to U.S. customs, based on lawsuits and police reports by migrant workers, was probably the first such effort against a subsidiary of an American-owned company in southeast Asia. "The conditions and treatment they have endured seem to satisfy the International Labour Organisation's forced labour indicators," the group's managing director, Duncan Jepson, said in its first comments to media on the issue.
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) -Two experts on Sime Darby Plantation Bhd's human rights commission said on Wednesday they had resigned from the panel due to lack of transparency, in a potential setback for the company's efforts to overturn a U.S. import ban. Migrant rights activist Andy Hall and human rights lawyer Justine Nolan, who joined just six weeks ago, told Reuters their resignation was effective Thursday. "From the onset there has been an extremely limited exchange of information between SDP and the stakeholder panel, which has led to an overall feeling that the human rights commission process has been excessively limited in scope and lacking in transparency," Hall said.
Malaysia's Sime Darby Plantation on Thursday brought back over 100 migrant workers from Bangladesh as part of a pilot scheme to overcome labour shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic and a freeze on recruitment of new foreign workers. Sime Darby told Reuters in an email that the scheme was being "conducted in collaboration with the Malaysian government to put return-to-work plans in motion in a controlled and safe manner." Malaysia relies on some 2 million documented foreign workers - mainly from Bangladesh, Indonesia and Nepal - to work in factory and plantation jobs which are shunned by locals who regard them as dirty, dangerous and difficult.
