Under enormous pressure, the workers had to call off their strike and return to work.  They have been back at work for about a week now.  The hours have not significantly changed.  The workers are now working from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 or 9:00 or 10:00 p.m.

The six workers remain imprisoned. One of the workers, (Mr. Mostafa, card# 544) is seriously ill, apparently with acute liver problems or appendicitis, and has been hospitalized.  The workers are extremely anxious regarding his condition and the quality of care he is receiving.

It appears that the factory owner has now also confiscated the workers passports, which is illegal and possibly a first step to forcible deportation.
