Malaysia: investigation finds recruitment fees charged to migrant workers in Samsung's supply chain

A report from The Guardian reveals recruitment fees charged to migrant workers, and the withholding of workers' passports, at Samsung's suppliers in Malaysia. Workers are reportedly afraid to speak out about their working conditions, for fear of violence. Samsung has published a response to the allegation, in which it reports that it is conducting an investigation into the information published by The Guardian, and that it will put in place the necessary remedies should its investigation reveal similar allegations.
