XINJIANG - French fashion brand Lacoste has halted orders for a line of gloves following allegations they were made using forced labour by Uyghur prisoners held at a Chinese internment camp.

The US-based Worker Rights Consortium raised concerns that Uyghur Muslims were being forced to sew the gloves at a factory in the Xinjiang region which is at the centre of allegations concerning the use of forced labour in China.

A Lacoste spokeswoman told the Associated Press news agency that the Yili Zhuo Wan Garment Manufacturing Company factory had been visited by auditors who interviewed workers and did not report any concerns.
