“The ASPI has identified 27 factories in nine Chinese provinces that are using Uyghur labour transferred from Xinjiang since 2017.
Those factories claim to be part of the supply chain of 83 well-known global brands.
The factories in which these Uyghur Muslims are made to work form a major chunk of the supply chain of these big brands.
Global phone leader Apple’s selfie camera manufacturer O-Film Technology Co. Ltd in Guangzhou, China, is also a part of the “Xinjiang Aid” and receives multiple workforces in terms of Uyghur Muslims, the report said.
A September 2019 report by New York-based China Labour Watch said contract workers at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory, who include Uyghur workers, had put in at least 100 overtime hours a month.
“The workers in these factories are brought and kept in dormitories after they finish their ‘re-education’ in the camps.
If a Quran is found, the owner will be sent back to the ‘re-education camp’ for 3-5 years.”. »
