China frees 3 activists who probed Ivanka Trump supplier

Chinese authorities have released on bail three activists who had been detained after investigating labour conditions at a factory that produced shoes for Ivanka Trump and other brands. The sign reads "visitors please exit the vehicle and register, people without relevant reasons can not enter this important factory area".

Three activists detained while investigating Chinese factories that have made shoes for Ivanka Trump's brand have been released on bail awaiting trial, their rights group said on Wednesday.

They were released on the final day of their 30-day detention period limit.

The executive director of China Labor Watch, a New York-based nonprofit, said he lost contact with Haifeng and the other two men, Li Zhao and Su Heng and concluded after dozens of unanswered calls: "They must be held either by the factory or the police to be unreachable". Her brand told The Hill that it had not used the factory in question in months.

The activists' lawyers said their actions were not criminal and they hoped Chinese courts would conduct a fair trial, the USA -based China Labor Watch said.

Stella International Holdings Ltd (1836.HK) Moves 0.58%
The stock was acquired at an average cost of GBX 351 ($4.46) per share, for a total transaction of £9,898.20 ($12,589.93). First American Bank decreased Time Warner Inc New (TWX) stake by 16.2% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing.

The company said it operates lawfully and that China Labor Watch "invented so-called "facts" by illegal means of buying undercover work, which has already affected the enterprise's normal business seriously and affected the survival and employment of tens of thousands of staff". According to China Labor Watch investigators, until recently, workers might get only two days off - or less - per month.

The activists disappeared or were detained in late May.

"Other nations have no right to interfere in our judicial sovereignty and independence", she said, adding, "the police found these people illegally possessed secret cameras, secret listening devices and other illegal monitoring devices". I'm happy to be out.

Ivanka Trump stepped down from her management role in the Ivanka Trump company when she took a job in her father's administration. The brand said it takes the allegations "very seriously".
