Rights group Liberty Shared has asked U.S. customs authorities to investigate the Malaysian operations of U.S. firm Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co over accusations of abusive labour practices, the group told Reuters. The Hong Kong-based anti-trafficking group said its June petition to U.S. customs, based on lawsuits and police reports by migrant workers, was probably the first such effort against a subsidiary of an U.S.-owned company in southeast Asia.
Malaysia's Sime Darby Plantation on Thursday brought back over 100 migrant workers from Bangladesh as part of a pilot scheme to overcome labour shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic and a freeze on recruitment of new foreign workers. Sime Darby told Reuters in an email that the scheme was being "conducted in collaboration with the Malaysian government to put return-to-work plans in motion in a controlled and safe manner." Malaysia relies on some 2 million documented foreign workers - mainly from Bangladesh, Indonesia and Nepal - to work in factory and plantation jobs which are shunned by locals who regard them as dirty, dangerous and difficult.
Sime Darby Plantation on Tuesday said it had withdrawn a lawsuit against the head of anti-trafficking NGO Liberty Shared as Malaysia's Securities Commission is no longer investigating the world's largest sustainable palm oil producer. Sime Darby had filed the lawsuit seeking information about a complaint to the Securities Commission by Liberty Shared managing director Duncan Jepson, which the company said triggered an investigation into its sustainability disclosures.
