Heart touching story about Qatar

Posted by Anup Baral Nov 29, 2016 :
In its fresh report titled “The Ugly Side of Beautiful Game: Exploitation of Migrant Workers on a Qatar 2022 World Cup Site,” the London-based human rights organisation exposed migrants workers from South Asia, including Nepal were “systematically abuses” and “forced labour’. In its 80-page in-depth report, AI stated contractors involved in the World Cup refurbishment of Khalifa International Stadium violated basic human rights of over 100 foreign labourers, many Nepalis by seizing their passports, delaying salary payments and using threats to force them to work. It can be recalled that Nepal’s then Ambassador to Qatar Maya Kumari Sharma, during a BBC interview, had termed “Qatar as an open jail” for foreign workers, for which she lost her job in September 2013.
