Amnesty report blasts Qatar workers’ living conditions

Migrant workers employed on a World Cup stadium refurbishment project in Qatar are still suffering from abuses, despite promises to boost welfare standards, according to Amnesty International. 

Dozens of migrant construction workers from countries like Nepal and India were charged high recruitment fees by agents in their home countries, were housed in “squalid” accommodation, and barred from leaving the country by employers who confiscated their passports, Amnesty said in a report. 

Authorities in Qatar agreed with some of the issues raised by Amnesty but said many of the concerns have already been addressed.
