Workers at a Honduran clothing factory which makes apparel for music mogul Sean P Diddy Comb's fashion line are forced to work in sweatshop conditions, it was alleged Monday.

The claims were made by a worker from Southeast Textiles plant in Choloma who says staff suffer daily body searches and have to drink contaminated water while making items for the Sean John line.

Lydda Eli Gonzalez was due to repeat the claims today in New York during a visit to a Sean John store with National Labour Committee director Charles Kernaghan who is set to release a report into conditions at the plant.

Sean John said today it was not aware of such a situation at the plant and promised to launch an immediate investigation into the claims.
