Greece. Some 28 Bangladeshis picking strawberries were shot by guards in April 2013 when they protested unpaid wages in Manolada in the western Peloponnese. The workers say they were paid E22 a day to pick strawberries, minus E6 a day for food and accommodation, but had not been paid for five months. There are an estimated 6,000 migrant workers in the area each year.
In July 2014, two of the shooters were acquitted of charges including forced labor to causing grievous bodily harm; the other two were convicted but released pending appeals. The workers' attorneys vowed to appeal.
