WASHINGTON – The US-based Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region claims Spanish-based apparel giant Inditex is not doing enough to mitigate its risk of profiting from Uyghur forced labour.
The human rights body, backed by NGOs including the Worker Rights Consortium, Clean Clothes Campaign and Anti-Slavery International, has also slammed the decision by Inditex to remove an online statement on Uyghur forced labour. Inditex has repeatedly declined requests to comment on its decision to remove this statement. BCI also airbrushed its website in the wake of a Chinese-led backlash against Western brands boycotting Xinjiang cotton.
Inditex is the owner of Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Massimo Dutti and other brands and is one of the largest apparel retailers in the world.
