Child refugees forced to work for nothing after leaving Calais

Posted on November 19, 2016

Child refugees sent from the demolished Calais “jungle” to supposedly safe welcome centres across France claim they have been pressed into forced labour. Legal interviews by the charity Safe Passage UK with unaccompanied minors dispersed from the refugee camp to France’s official reception centres have uncovered allegations that children have been forced into unpaid work. Youngsters said they were too scared to refuse because they feared it would harm their chances of asylum to the UK.
