Jordania - Garment workers – beaten and deported for striking (2010)

Reports emerged of abuse of migrant workers in various companies including the Israeli owned Musa Garment Factory. Workers at the Musa factory complained of forced overtime, beatings, insufficient food, the illegal withholding of passports and other abuses amounting to conditions of forced labour. However, when workers protested they were instead beaten by police, arrested and then deported to their home countries just days after assurances from the Ministry of labour that no action would be taken against them for six months pending an investigation. Several remained in prison.
