NGOs file lawsuit in France against Inditex, Uniqlo, SMCP & Skechers over allegations of profiting from Uyghur forced labour

In April 2021, Sherpa, the Collectif Ethique sur l’étiquette, the Uyghur Institute of Europe and an Uyghur victim filed lawsuit in France against global clothing brands: Inditex, Uniqlo, SMCP & Skechers.

They accuse the companies of profiting from Uyghur forced labour in the Xinjiang region of China by continuing to subcontract part of their production or to market goods using cotton produced in the region despite reports of forced labour there.

Further complaints will be filed in other European countries.
