British migrant rights activist Andy Hall faces 7 years imprisonment and $10 million in damages from lawsuits brought by Thai pineapple company Natural Fruit.
Hall's research for workers' rights NGO Finnwatch found serious abuses at Natural Fruit’'s pineapple factory including child labour, illegally low wages, confiscation of identity documents and violence.
Rather than address issues, Natural Fruit tried to silence Andy with bogus lawsuits.
The first of several criminal trials begins on Tuesday 2 September.
