The Daily Mail Accused Of Seedy Slave Labour Mask Manufacturing Scheme
A charity set up by the Daily Mail to buy protective equipment for NHS staff donated 100,000 face masks suspected of being made by workers in a controversial Chinese slave labour programme.
The masks were flown in from China by the paper’s Mail Force campaign, which was launched in April to buy PPE. They were bought from Medwell Medical Products, a firm suspected of using Uighur Muslims in the slave labour scheme.
In fact, Medwell’s factory, in the town of Fenglin, in Jiangxi province, eastern China, was identified by the New York Times in July 2020 as using suspected forced labour from the country’s Uighur minority. According to the paper, Uighur Muslims make up 25% of the workforce at the factory.
Typical seedy behaviour by the fascists at The Daily Mail!
