Forced cashew labour accusation

This article was originally published in Foodnews

VIETNAM’s cashew sector has come under fire from a human rights group which alleges drug users detained for rehabilitation are being forced to work processing the nuts. The sector is one of a number of Vietnamese industries highlighted by the non-governmental organisation, Human Rights Watch, in a recent report, which alleges that people detained by the police for using drugs are held for years without due process and forced to work for no or little pay and suffer torture and physical violence. Human Rights Watch said it is investigating companies that allegedly contracted with the detention centres.
