“Officials on Thursday promised ‘swift and exemplary’ punishment for three strawberry plantation foremen who allegedly shot and injured 29 Bangladeshi labourers protesting late pay.

Police are seeking the three suspects who disappeared after Wednesday’s shootings, which occurred during a confrontation with some 200 Bangladeshi farm workers in the country’s rural south who say they have not been paid for half a year.

Seven Bangladeshi workers were still receiving treatment in local hospitals, but none have life-threatening injuries.

One of the immigrants involved in the protests told Skai TV that they had been promised wages of €22 a day. Reports say some men were owed €1,000 each.

‘They keep telling us that we will get paid in a month, and this has been going on for more than a year,’ said the worker, who was not identified. ‘We don’t talk about it because we are afraid that we will be killed or kicked out.'”
