Students face stick for not working in cotton farms

Dec '09
The Government of Uzbekistan, has been criticized frequently by international organizations, for forcibly sending its school and college students to harvest the cotton crop.

But according to a new revelation from a University Professor, an average of 8-10 students are expelled from colleges for not getting involved in the harvesting of the cotton crop.

He added by saying that, in lieu, the students are levied a hefty fine between US $150-600, in order to set an example amongst other students.

Uzbekistan is the fifth-largest and the second-biggest cotton exporter in the world and has been facing flak from the global community for employing student labour in its cotton fields.

Fellow Central Asian cotton producers, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan halted the use of child labor in the 1990s, while Turkmenistan adopted a law banning the practice in 2005.
