YANGON - Primark is investigating allegations that garment workers at one of its suppliers in Myanmar were locked inside their factory to prevent them from joining anti-coup protests.

Up to 1,000 workers employed by GY Sen in the country's biggest city, Yangon, were allegedly locked in for several hours to prevent them from leaving work to take part in protests.

A Primark spokesperson said: “These are very serious allegations that, if true, would be in breach of the strict code of conduct that Primark requires all suppliers and factories that make our garments to adhere to at all times. Our highest priority is to keep workers safe and well, and ensuring their rights and freedoms are respected."
