- Activists alleged excessive overtime and low wages at the Huajian Group
- One has been detained, while two others are missing
A Chinese company that makes shoes for Ivanka Trump and other brands denied allegations on Thursday of excessive overtime and low wages – accusations made by three activists who have been arrested or disappeared.
The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Hua Haifeng, an investigator for China Labor Watch, a New York-based not-for-profit group, had been arrested on a charge of illegal surveillance while his two colleagues – Li Zhao and Su Heng – are missing and rights groups fear they have been detained. They were investigating Huajian Group factories in the southern Chinese cities of Ganzhou and Dongguan.
