    Craig has reported this practice over years. This is a current report saying that the industry is being privatised. Note the British firm Wayrex that is involved in this nasty trade.

    Uzbekistan’s cotton privatisation raises red flags
    As Uzbekistan turns to privatisation to solve forced labour in the state-controlled cotton sector, an investigation into an international equipment contract raises red flags over business practices and government control.

    ‘Wayrex is a little known English trade agent, which public documents and internal records indicate is a key part of Uztex’s offshore holding structure. This poses a question: Why would one of Uzbekistan’s largest textile firms enter into a multi-million dollar equipment contract with a prestigious Swiss supplier, only then to agree to outsource this large-scale job to a small British offshore vehicle apparently in its own group structure?’

    The four ‘directors’ of Wayrex LLP (limited liability partnership) are companies. Companies within companies within companies. A slimy trail.
