Amnesty to release report on Qatar 2022 stadiumsby Ashleigh McGinley on Mar 10, 2016
Human rights group Amnesty International is set to launch a major new report on migrant workers in Qatar at the end of March, Arabian Business reported.
In a statement, Amnesty said the report, based on interviews with more than 200 workers, will for the first time document conditions for people working on a 2022 World Cup stadium.
The report will also show how - despite attempts to reform 'Kafala' system in the past two years - there are still forced labour and other human rights abuse ongoing in the country.
The news comes as the Indian government confirmed that it has received 787 complaints from Indian labourers in Qatar so far this year, Arabian Business concluded,
