AIN criticises govt

KATHMANDU: The Amnesty International Nepal (AIN) has accused the government of Nepal of not making any concrete efforts to secure the welfare of Nepalis migrant workers in Qatar. In a press statement issued by the AIN, the human rights organisation stated that it was a matter of shame that the country had failed to safeguard its fellow countrymen’s labour rights in Qatar. Qatar has drawn significant number of Nepali migrant workers for construction of infrastructure for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. AIN, therefore, has urged the Nepal government to appeal to the world football’s governing body, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), to pile pressure on Qatar government to ensure the migrant workers’ labour rights there.
