Samsung denies child labour at Chinese supplier


South Koreas Samsung Electronics has refuted fresh allegations by a labour protection watchdog that one of its suppliers in China hired child workers. New York-based China Labor Watch (CLW) claimed in a report Thursday that Samsung supplier HEG Technology had hired people under the age of 16 at its facility in Huizhou, China. Samsung, however, insisted that a recent onsite investigation found no underage or student workers at the facility. The investigation found that there were no child workers nor student workers working in the Samsung Electronics production line at HEG, the company said in a statement e-mailed to AFP on Friday.
