In fact, both farmers illegally hired Moroccan immigrants under improper circumstances, without an employment contract. The latter required their employers to obtain a work certificate of more than 5,000 euros, which would allow them to formalize their management position. After promising to report them, the employers broke their promises.
The same business report states that both merchants would have welcomed Moroccan immigrants to work on their farms for years in poor conditions. In addition to snatching away their social rights and especially social security, immigrants are being exploited in the harvest of strawberries, experiencing humiliating treatment and humiliation throughout the day, says one employee who suffered from terminal illness, which stopped when his condition worsened.
Based on an employee’s complaint, as part of an investigation overseen by a competent public prosecutor’s office, Houlva police began arresting two Spanish farmers.
