One man has been arrested and two others are missing after investigating working conditions at a Chinese company that produces Ivanka Trump-brand shoes, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
The three men were working with China Labor Watch, a New York-based nonprofit, which was reportedly planning to publish a report next month alleging low pay and excessive overtime use by the Chinese company.
According the Associated Press, Hua Haifeng was arrested and accused of illegal surveillance. China Labor Watch said it lost touch with the other two men, Li Zhao and Su Heng, over the weekend.
The three men were investigating Ganzhou Huajian International Shoe City Co.’s factory in Jiangxi province. Heng had been working undercover at the factory since April, China Labor Watch Director Li Qiang said. The parent company is known as Huajian Group.http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/335709-three-men-investigating-ivanka-trump-brands-in-china-arrested
