Labor Rights Groups in Taiwan Protest Over Death of Nigerian Man at Construction Site

              Labor rights groups in Taiwan protest over death of Nigerian man at construction site
A coalition of labor rights groups on Wednesday, August 15, protested outside the Taipei City Hall, Taiwan, demanding the city investigate the death of a Nigerian man found dead at a Hwang Chang General Contractor Co construction site. 
Nwagbo John Ugochukwu, 55, was found dead at a construction site for the new Huannan Market in Wanhua District on the morning of July 30, Taiwan International Workers’ Association (TIWA) chairwoman Susan Chen said.
While the company denied having hired Ugochukwu, who had entered Taiwan in June on a one-month tourist visa, Chen said the association was told by a worker that the Nigerian had been working at the construction site.
The worker, who preferred to remain anonymous, added that the company might have tampered with evidence to evade responsibility, she said.
“Based on what we were told, Ugochukwu fell from the first basement level to the second basement level, but the company told police and labor inspection officials that he had fallen from the second floor to the first and that it happened in a stairwell.”

The association also alleged that the company might have deleted the security footage of the incident.
“As far as we know, immediately following the incident, Hwang Chang called the security company and did something with the footage. Later, police told me there was no footage of the incident,” she said.
Moreover, they suspected there might be more people working illegally for the company.
“The government has not approved any program allowing the company to hire migrant workers, but many migrant workers have been seen working at the construction site. It is unclear whether they were company employees transferred from other construction sites or if they were illegal immigrants,” Chen said.

The Taipei Department of Labor should not only investigate the case, but ensure that the basic human rights of migrant workers and illegal immigrants are protected, she said.
“We want the truth about his death, so that he may rest in peace. He might have been an illegal immigrant, but he was also a human being. His body is now being handled like that of an unidentified person — left at the Taipei City Mortuary Services Office’s Second Funeral Parlor,” she said.
