A China-based supplier for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Lenovo Group Ltd said on Thursday it had never hired child laborers, denying allegations by a U.S.-based activist group.

Samsung Electronics also said it had found no children or students working on the Samsung production line at the Huizhou-based factory of supplier HEG Technology, which was cited as violating China's labor laws by the New York-based watchdog China Labor Watch.

A Lenovo spokeswoman said the company would look into the report.

In a statement Nike Vapormax Flyknit UK Sale , China Labor Watch said it had found more than 10 children working at the HEG factory during an investigation that took place in July and August. It also said the probe had found over 100 student workers who were not being paid overtime wages or a night shift subsidy.

The watchdog said it had shared the evidence with Samsung last week and that Samsung demanded the supplier pay some students' wages. It did not say whether Samsung took any action on the matter of child labor or whether it had reached out to Lenovo with the information.

An employee surnamed Zeng at HEG Technology's human resources department told Reuters the company had never hired children, and that it had facial recognition systems in place to ensure workers were not underage.

For Samsung products, HEG employs workers aged 18 and over while the minimum age for workers on Lenovo's product lines is 16 years Nike VaporMax Black UK Sale , she said. The company relies on an outsourcing company to hire students, she added.

In its statement, Samsung said it had proposed to China Labor Watch that they conduct a joint onsite investigation "for more precise verification" of the allegations.

Samsung also said it had informed the watchdog about the results of its own investigation Nike Nike Vapormax Off White UK Sale , adding: "We find it regrettable that CLW issued the allegations today without any mention of our statement."

This is the second time in as many months that China Labor Watch has said it found children working at Samsung's Chinese suppliers. Samsung halted business with one supplier and later reinstated it, but with a 30 percent reduction in orders.

Other multinational companies, including Apple Inc www.nikevapormaxuk.com , have been plagued by revelations of underage workers in their supply chains.

Child workers have previously been discovered at Foxconn, the supplier for some of the world's biggest tech brands, including Apple. Foxconn is the trading name of Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry.

Two years ago Nike Vapormax Shoes UK Sale , China Labor Watch accused HEG of using child labor. Samsung subsequently said it had not found any workers below the legal working age of 16 in its audit of the facility.

The problem goes beyond electronics, according to the U.S. Department of Labour's Bureau of International Labor Affairs. Bricks, cotton Nike Vapormax UK Sale , fireworks, textiles and toys also feature on its list of goods which it says it has reason to believe are produced by child labor in China.

MANILA, June 25 (Xinhua) -- Hilaria Bustamante was only 16 years old when, one day more than 70 years ago, three Japanese soldiers abducted her, hauled her onto a military truck and brought her to a garrison where she was reportedly imprisoned and repeatedly raped for a year.

Now at the age of 90, her tragic story as a Philippine comfort woman for the Japanese army during the Second World War is among those included in a document submitted to the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

To keep alive the memories of up to 200,000 women and teenage girls from around Asia who were forced to work in Japanese wartime military brothels, support groups of former sex slaves from China, Japan, the Philippines and the Netherlands have jointly asked UNESCO to include documents related to wartime sex slavery in the UN body's Memory of the World Register.

On June 1, a group called the International Solidarity Committee said in Seoul, South Korea, that they filed the application titled "Voice of the Japanese Military Comfort Women" to UNESCO.

It included testimonies of the victims, their photos, court case documents and even art works like drawings and quilts made by the aging women who came forward since the early 1990s, according to Rechilda Extremadura, executive director of the Lila Pilipina (League of Filipino Women), a non-governmental organization assisting the elderly Filipinas.

"These documents must be regicstered on the UNESCO list. This will preserve the official records and prove that Asian women were indeed forced into Japanese military brothels during World War II," she told Xinhua.

"We should not allow Japan to delete its wartime aggression in Asia. We did not make this up. Sex slavery existed and these documents will prove their existence in the Philippines, the Korean Peninsula, China and Indonesia," she said.

The group took two years to collate all the necessary data. "The process was tedious and meticulous. You need to include measurements of the art works for instance," she said.

Extremadura said the group has decided to keep the idea under wraps to make sure that Japan will not do anything to derail the plan.

"We had to do it very discreetly because we expect Japan to thwart our move. No announcements were made; no press releases. (Tokyo) only learned about it when we filed the application early this month," she said.

Japan is a major donor to UNESCO. Last year, Tokyo threatened to halt or slash its funding to the UN body after UNESCO included China's documents about the Nanjing massacre in its Memory of the World list, despite protests from Japan.

Extremadura stressed the significance of the move, saying the victims are not getting any younger.
