Indonesian govt slams abuse of its fishermen on Chinese boats leaving three dead

Jakarta: The Indonesian government has condemned the 'inhuman' treatment given to its nationals by a Chinese fishing company that allegedly kept Indonesian fishermen as virtual slaves, media reports said. The incident reportedly left three Indonesian citizens dead.

Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi told a video conference from the capital, Jakarta, that 49 Indonesian fishermen, ranging from 19 to 24 years old, were forced to work an average of over 18 hours a day on at least four Chinese fishing boats, reported The Diplomat.

Marsudi said some of the fishermen were either not paid at all or did not receive the amount they had agreed to. 

“We condemn the inhuman treatment against our crew members working at the Chinese fishing company,” Marsudi was quoted as saying by The Diplomat. “Based on the information from the crews, the company has violated human rights.”
