CANADIAN APPAREL COMPANY CANCELS ITS CONTRACT WITH A CHINESE COMPANY OVER CLAIMS OF THE USE OF FORCED NORTH KOREAN LABOUR

On 7 November, the Hindustan Times reported that a CBC TV report in Canada had claimed that Dandong Huayang Textiles was using forced North Korean labour.  CBC said that it might be in violation of 2017 UN sanctions which ban employment of North Koreans to fund North Korea’s WMD programme.  The Canadian company, Reitmans, said that it will remove all remaining inventory which originated from this supplier and give it to charity.
