Four United Nations human rights officials have strongly criticised the British Government’s scheme governing protection and labour rights for migrant fishermen from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The letter focuses on modern forms of racism, slavery and on trafficking in persons.
The International Transport Workers’ Federation has begun legal proceedings against the Irish government over its Atypical Work Scheme, which was introduced as a way to register non-European workers in fishing and ensure their rights, however it has failed to stop routine human rights abuses, according to ITF.
The Taiwanese government fails to protect migrant fishers – coming mainly from Southeast Asian countries – against human rights abuses, because of the lack of appropriate laws, transparency and labour inspection measures, the NGO coalition ‘Human Rights for Migrant Fishers’ has noted.
