  • Juice traders, how do you sleep at night? - Finnwatch
    the defense before they were called to the witness stand and any statements from witnesses had not been obtained in advance so the defence didn t know what they were going to say Also none of the Thai language documents had been provided to the defense in advance The Defense therefore had to operate without advanced preparation If the Thai judiciary works like this under international attention and observers sitting in the court hall I can only guess what kind of justice is distributed for ordinary common people or migrant workers The Finnish Embassy in Bangkok participated in the trial hearings on four days Representatives from the British embassy and the Australian Embassy also visited the court In the courtroom representatives from the International Organization for Migration and the International Labour Organization ILO also appeared In addition International trade unions sent their own observers to the trial During the examination Natural Fruit s lawyer focused on the word hell Andy Hall had used this term when giving an interview to Al Jazeera in 2013 saying Factory workers told me that working there was like hell All the witnesses were asked a number of times what hell was At times it was difficult to hold back the laughter when the witnesses testified different views of hell for some it was a hot spot of terrible suffering while others said it was something you feel inside The prosecutor brought a photocopy of the dictionary to the justice where the hell was defined with a few sentences referring to different kinds of horrors I wonder what the comparative religious researchers back home would think about this I laughed My smile froze however and quickly The trial was interrupted from time to time when prisoners in orange brown uniforms were brought in from the ground floor of the courthouse wearing shackles on their feet At that point everyone realized that the barefoot prisoner in the degrading outfit could be Andy Foolish debate about the word hell was used as a weapon in the process of trying to destroy the life of an activist Investigative journalism and critical research are a rare phenomenon in Thailand and judicial processes against activists are common In the court we heard several speeches from different research traditions The prosecution called a witness an academic professor who said that all research should be quantitative and factories researched should never be revealed He said if the factory does not cooperate with the researcher the researcher must simply look for a new factory for examination Western researchers and journalists that observed the trial exchanged amazed glances with each other The defense witnesses were then able to testify on Friday Sept 5 The defense called journalist Wayne Hay from New Zealand to testify and he told the court about the basic principles of journalism the story making stages and the purpose of different interviews and perspectives He explained that Andy Hall just gave an interview to Al Jazeera and was not responsible for

  • Glove factory Siam Sempermed suspected of labour rights violations - Finnwatch
    holidays are often prohibited Interviewed workers were exhausted and in desperate need of a holiday and shorter working days says Finnwatch s Executive Director Sonja Vartiala Austrian based company Semperit is one of the world s leading hospital glove manufacturers Semperit s gloves are used all over the world and also importantly in Finnish hospitals where they have been purchased using Finnish tax payers money According to the workers they are packing gloves for up to 13 hours per day with only 30 minutes break and are facing numerous deductions from their salaries This is unacceptable says Vartiala Finnwatch s research affords particularly harsh criticism to Semperit s corporate social responsibility practices According to Finnwatch Siam Sempermed factory s appeals or complaint mechanisms and responsibility monitoring systems are lacking in quality Finnwatch informed Siam Sempermed s European owner Semperit about these labour rights violations already in December 2013 but the company turned a deaf ear to this whistle blowing Instead of addressing the situation of labour rights violations Semperit has continued to deny all accusations and said that the company has never heard of any problems in its Thai factory Semperit has been BSCI audited in March 2013 According to Semperit external audits have underlined the proper manner in which we deal with our employees as well as our compliance with all prevailing labour regulations in Thailand In its statement to Finnwatch the Business Social Compliance Initiative BSCI however has said clearly that This Semperit statement does not reflect the findings gathered through the BSCI audits and therefore puts the credibility of BSCI in question BSCI further stated that it will take action regarding Semperit if the company does not correct its prior statement to Finnwatch BSCI s response has raised serious concerns that Semperit is not telling the whole
