Men who investigated Ivanka Trump China suppliers off bail

AP  |  Shanghai 

Labour Watch says three activists who were arrested while investigating abuses at Ivanka Trump's Chinese suppliers last year were released from today, but questions remain about their ability to live and work freely.

The men were detained for a month last year as they prepared a report alleging low pay, excessive overtime and verbal and physical abuse at a shoe factory in southeastern

Labour Watch says was lifted Tuesday but the men had to sign documents stating that their actions had caused the factory financial harm, which could give the authorities ongoing leverage.

One of the investigators, Hua Haifeng, hopes to travel to the US for a four-month stint as a visiting at Cornell University, according to China Labour Watch.
