More Than 300 Slaves Rescued In Indonesia After AP Investigation
The Associated Press recently revealed that men were being held against their will and forced to work at a fishery on a remote Indonesian island. On Friday, the government evacuated more than 300.
The AP revealed last month that thousands of workers were being held against their will on an isolated island in often brutal conditions.
Many of the slaves were originally from Myanmar and were trafficked through Thailand to the Indonesian fishing companies.
When officials arrived at the Pusaka Benjina Resources fishing company, they asked those who wanted to leave the compound to raise their hands.
