Are there any documented accounts of Forever 21 using sweatshop labor overseas

I've been compiling some research on Forever 21. I've read Susan Berfield's article in Business Week
, and I've found lots of information about 2001 lawsuit
brought by the Garment Worker Center on behalf of 19 workers working in LA based sweatshops. Since 2005, Forever 21 has moved about 70% of it's manufacturing overseas. While there are many allegations that the company is exploiting cheap overseas labor (and I don't doubt it), I can't find any concrete information about labor violations or incidents after two days of sporadic googling. It's strange because I can find plenty of specific information related to other companies like Gap, Nike, etc. Can anyone point me to specific information about Forever 21's manufacturing in countries outside the US?
