RIO DE JANEIRO — Zara, owned by Spanish clothing retailer Inditex SA, is being investigated by Brazilian federal prosecutors who were tipped off about alleged slave labor practices and conditions at sewing sweatshops run by an Inditex supplier, according to a prosecutor’s office.
The spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor’s office in the city of Osasco in southern São Paulo State, where Zara is headquartered in Brazil, could not provide more detailed information, other than to say that the investigation was opened on Aug. 16.
