“Explain and Share Opinion on Thai Pineapple Industry Association (TPIA) Letter”, 28 August 2014

I wish to inform you that this international solidarity campaign was conducted independently of me. This was an international campaign supporting me but more importantly a number of principles…important to the international labour and human rights community…[T]he accusations and description of my personal character and motives…have negatively impacted on me. The words used in your response have affected my international and professional reputation…Natural Fruit…has been given the opportunity, time and space to respond to these allegations of abuse…Natural Fruit…, in contrast to all other companies I have engaged in the past, has not taken this course of action to demonstrate its lawful conduct or provide evidence to refute accusations made against it…This is a course of action that remains open to them…[Thai version provided.]
