    Olympics drops Chinese firm over child labour
    August
    2007 — Beijing (CHN): The Beijing Olympic organising committee (BOCOG)
    has terminated a licensing contract with Lekit Stationery after an
    investigation found it guilty of employing child labour.A June report
    accused the stationery firm, involved in the manufacture of official
    merchandise for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, of employing children
    and making them work 13-hour days.At the time, Lekit manager Michael
    Lee strongly denied the claims, telling the BBC: “It’s not true. We
    work for some of the best brand names in the world and they check our
    company every month.”After completing its investigation, BOCOG said:
    “The report shows that from January to February 2007, Lekit Stationery
    was believed to have used child labour by employing eight students for
    packaging work, which was not related to Olympic products.”In addition,
    labour contracts were not signed with some of its workers. BOCOG has
    decided to terminate Lekit Stationery’s right to manufacture and sell
    Olympic licensed products and revoked its licensing contract with the
    company.”
