Entrevistamos al defensor británico de los derechos humanos Andy Hall que salió de Tailandia en noviembre de 2016 entre las crecientes presiones derivadas del nuevo proceso penal iniciado contra él. La Asociación Tailandesa de Alimentos Congelados y la Asociación Tailandesa de la Industria Atunera pagaron su fianza cuando se formularon cargos contra él por documentar abusos contra los trabajadores de empresas del sector de la fruta y el atún. La empresa finlandesa S Group testificó en favor de Andy en su juicio y promovió su caso en las instituciones de la UE. Preguntamos a Andy qué fue lo que condujo a esta evolución de la confianza entre él y las empresas.
In-depth interview with Andy Hall: "Companies should help prevent another witch hunt on human rights defenders and civil society"
Author: Bobbie Sta Marta and Ana Zbona, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, Feb 2017
Plum Village Zen Buddhist monastery is not where we were expecting to find Andy Hall - an international affairs advisor to the Migrant Worker Rights Network (MWRN) in Thailand and a well-known human rights defender - when we asked him for an interview. After leaving Thailand because of being harshly prosecuted because of his activism, he retreated to the Zen Buddhist monastery in Southern France where he spent 100 days of his life going inwards, being mindful, his movements limited to 3 temples in the countryside. He says it was hard to leave the country where he spent the last 11 years fighting for migrants’ workers’ rights – but harsh judicial harassment, most importantly by Natural Fruit, a company the abuses of which he was investigating, made it impossible to stay.
