Labour activist who opened a tin of worms confident he can crush cannery in the courts

Andy Hall's report into the mistreatment of migrant workers at a Thai fruit factory led to a multimillion baht lawsuit but he remains confident that he will triumph, saying that facts _ and justice _ are on his side

British migration expert Andy Hall was hired last year by Finnwatch, a Finnish NGO, to coordinate research for a report into alleged labour rights violations at a tinned pineapple and juice concentrate maker based in Prachuap Khiri Khan called Natural Fruit. 

The Finnwatch report, Cheap Has a High Price: Responsibility Problems Relating to International Private Label Products and Food Production in Thailand, was published in December last year, and the findings passed on to relevant Thai ministries.

Natural Fruit was contacted by the report's writers repeatedly during the research process and after the report was released, but did not respond in any way or display any interest to comment.
