Uzbek activist detained for forced labour monitoring
Author: Louise Eldridge, Anti-Slavery International, Published on: 20 March 2017
Anti-Slavery International is extremely concerned about the latest incarceration of prominent Uzbek human rights activist Elena Urlaeva. Elena has been working for over a decade to raise awareness of ongoing forced labour in Uzbekistan’s cotton sector. Her arrest demonstrates the hostile climate for independent forced labour monitors, and the lack of genuine commitment by the Government to end its use of forced labour.
