Amazon fires security firm that mistreated migrant workers

The online retailer Amazon has ended a contract with a security firm that was accused in a TV documentary of intimidating temporary workers hired for the Christmas rush.

Amazon said it would not tolerate such behaviour, Deutsche Welle reported.

Growing criticism forced the online retail giant Amazon to end its relationship with Hensel European Security Services (HESS) with immediate effect on Monday.

The TV documentary broadcast last week also accused HESS guards of wearing clothes linked to Germany's neo-Nazi scene.

"Amazon has a zero tolerance limit for discrimination and intimidation and expects the same of other companies we work with," spokeswoman Ulrike Stoecker told the news agency Associated Press.
