News) - Chinese authorities have arrested the owner of a shelter for mentally retarded for allegedly selling inmates at the center to a factory in the country's western region of Xinjiang to work without pay, state media reported Tuesday.
According to the Xinhua report, Zeng Lingquan, the owner of an unauthorized shelter for the mentally ill in Sichuan province, was accused of selling eleven inmates in his care to the Jiaersi Green Construction Material Chemical Factory in Xinjiang province.
The workers sold to the construction materials factory that manufactured talcum powder and quartz sand were reportedly forced to work without pay and live in deplorable conditions. They were fed the same food as the factory owner's dogs and made to work under hazardous conditions through the year.
Authorities in Xinjiang have launched a manhunt for Li Xinglin, the owner of the factory who escaped with a dozen mentally disabled workers before police raided the factory on Monday morning. They believe Li has headed to Sichuan province with the mentally ill workers. His wife has been arrested and the factory shut down.
This is not the first time that a case of ill people being abused as laborers has been brought to light in China. In 2007, police had rescued hundreds of people working under slave-like conditions in brick kilns in Shanxi Province. Authorities had then pledged to take necessary steps to prevent similar offense
