Syrian children employed to produce fake life jackets in İzmir factory
Turkish police have seized over 1,200 unsafe life jackets destined for use by migrants trying to reach Greece by sea, in a raid on an underground workshop that used Syrian underage labor on Jan. 6.

The authorities seized 1,263 life jackets that failed to correspond to safety standards in the raid on the workshop in the center of İzmir, Doğan News Agency said.

İzmir is a major hub for refugees and migrants seeking to make the risky crossing in flimsy boats to EU member Greece, Agence France-Presse reported.

The fake life jackets seized were filled with “packaging” rather than the proper material needed to keep users alive for hours in the water.

Four people were found working in the workshop, including two young Syrian girls. The confiscated life jackets have been sent to local police for examination while an investigation has been launched.

Standard life-jackets cost 70 Turkish Liras while the seized jackets were sold for only 20 liras. However, they have caused an increase in the number of deaths among refugees because they lack buoyancy.

A prison sentence should reflect on the potential deaths these life jackets could or have caused.
