WASHINGTON DC — US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has lifted an import ban on an Indian garment manufacturer - which supplied major brands including H&M - after officials accepted that forced labour had been eradicated.

Natchi Apparel, which is owned by Eastman Exports, made international headlines last year after 20-year-old garment worker Jeyasre Kathiravel was allegedly raped and murdered by her supervisor.

The case led to the 'Dindigul Agreement' between the company, H&M, trade unions and workers' rights campaigners to stamp out sexual violence and harassment through gender-based training for all factory workers, supervisors and executives.
