The coroner’s inquiry into the deaths of two Chinese national workers at a leather dyeing factory has raised questions about workplace safety. The victims died days after they were found floating in a sump filled with waste water.

CCTV footage showed that one of them had gone into the sump to try to rescue his colleague.

Yesterday, a Manpower Ministry investigating officer and the factory manager gave conflicting versions on what might have led to their deaths. The hearing has been adjourned to July 10.
