Chinese prisoners used as labourers in developing countries

 
Thousands of Chinese prison inmates are employed in projects created by state companies in other developing countries. Beijing’s lack of respect for the rights of workers.
 
 
 

Beijing (AsiaNews / Agencies) - Around the world, especially in developing countries, Chinese firms are building dams, railways, roads, buildings and other infrastructure, often in exchange for oil and precious minerals. Thousands of workers employed are prisoners, on conditional release.

Brahma Chellaney, professor of strategic studies at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi, says that thousands of Chinese prisoners were used in the construction of ports, railways and other infrastructure built by Chinese state companies in Sri Lanka, a country which has great strategic importance because of its key position in the Indian Ocean.

Other detainees were sent to build 4 thousand houses on the Maldives islands, a "gift" from Beijing to the local government, to gain favours. Moreover, the president of the Maldives has not accepted the request to Beijing for one of the 700 uninhabited islands as a Chinese naval base.

China carries out three times the death penalty around the world. There is no official data, but Amnesty International has estimated that in 2007 Beijing executed "approximately 22 inmates per day”. But Beijing has also the largest prison population worldwide. According to the International Centre for Prison Studies based in London, in 2009 it numbered 1.57 million inmates: more than the population of countries like Estonia or Qatar.

Chinese firms who create works abroad prefer to hire a low number of local workers, especially for labour, and bring most workers from China. The detainees "released" on parole lead normal lives of Chinese workers in these places: the live near the workplace, they mix among themselves, and have little chance to flee in a foreign country.

These prisoners are all volunteers. Experts believe that the system is favoured by Beijing: Chinese firms involved in these projects are generally state owned and could not, by themselves, convince many prisoners and take on responsibility, obtain passports or visas for foreign travel for all. The prisoners are used for cheap labour.

In theory, the Chinese government is committed, even formally, to employ local workers in the projects, as requested by States to help the country's economy, and meet safety standards. But many companies still use mostly Chinese workers. The advantages are that they accept longer and harder working hours compared to local workers, and do not create problems related to wages or unions or safety standards.

In the past China was highly contentious by foreign countries over major disasters or protests by workers demanding their rights. The memory of incidents like the explosion of a copper mine in Zambia, being mined by a Chinese company, is still alive, an accident that claimed the lives of 51 local miners and resulted in massive protests.

This is interesting information for all those who believe China is a "sensible" substitute for Europeans in the 'development' of Africa. Instead of investing in African people to develop the continent, leaders are permitting China to send in its prisoners (convicted for who knows what) to live and work among Black people.

Thanks for sharing. Eye had no idea that many of the Chinese we see on the Continent were prisoners back in China. Now it makes sense, as I recall certain incidents. Shame on China.

eurasians are going to continue to be who they are, whether or not we learn the lesson.

As a kenyan seeing all major infrastructure projects being given to the Chinese, this is starting to make sense. I won't say I'm surprised.

Recently, there was a story in our local news where one of the chinese was recorded via phone calling our people and president Monkeys.  He was then deported.

We also have poor conduct from their staff and dead animals:

And this is under contract with the our government.

Neocolonialism clear as day and people are still on autopilot as if nothing is going on.

Meda woe ase for the article. Being born in the U.S. it reminds me of the criminals called pilgrims that invaded North America eventually taking the land for their own. It's important to realize details on the role Chinese play I'd like to add the picture below. Essentially the caucasoids are using the Chinese (and they want to be used) as a buffer and power play to establish a broader rule the world over with the land and minerals of Afrika being a key in there plans. 

This railroad system bankrolled in large part by caucasoids helps to highlight the future plan the Chinese and Caucasoids have for us.

With regard to Black people, all eurasians are eurasians:
