Qatar has failed to explain up to 70% of migrant worker deaths in past 10 years – Amnesty (6,500+ died)

World Cup host has not properly investigated fatalities, rights group says, citing concerns over heat stress and safety

World Cup host Qatar has failed to investigate the deaths of thousands of migrant workers in the past decade, according to a new report by Amnesty International.

The human rights organisation said the majority of migrant worker deaths in Qatar are attributed to “natural causes”, cardiac or respiratory failure; classifications which are “meaningless” without the underlying cause of death explained, according to one expert cited.

As a result, as many as 70% of deaths may be unexplained. “In a well resourced health system, it should be possible to identify the exact cause of death in all but 1% of cases,” the report said.... In February the Guardian revealed that more than 6,500 migrant workers from south Asia had died in Qatar in the past decade.

Asian Town, Qatar’s mall for migrants: ‘You can’t ignore the racial undertones’
The new Asian Town mall was designed to cater to Qatar’s roughly 2 million migrant workers – but critics say it is simply a way to segregate them.

Easy Explanation.

You come to Qutar and work for me. I confiscate your passport and tell you you must work 4 years before I will return it. I get a cut of your pay and charge you for housing.

You work like a dog and are treated as a sub human. Absolute minimum health care and no OSHA type safety regs.

Year 4, I refuse to give you your passport and you stay a few more years working yourself to death in the sun building roads, houses, pipelines, whatever.

God help you if you are female. Get ready to preform sexual services as part of your job.

I saw this when I lived in Kuwait. Few Kuwait citizens work except in management. All laborers/workers are imported.

Don't care a whit about the WC, all that prancing about like flamboyant fauns.

As far as the alien deaths, simple. Their number was up. Simple as that. Remember, it's Muslimtown, after all.

And we spent our blood and treasure saving those a-holes from Saddam.

My Filipina coworker was a domestic slave in Jordan until she escaped after 2 years when a window was left unbolted. Her passport was confiscated but the police got it back after she escaped. She weighed 35 kg when released. She barely ate or slept, and said Ramadan was the worse, families would get together and feast all night, she had to cook special dishes for each kid on demand. Then when they were all glutted and passed out she’d do the housework and clean dishes and maybe get a couple hours of sleep. She barely hung on for the sake of her kids.

In the Philippines they teach classes for domestic placements in the ME, but if the bastards can get away with it they hold them hostage. Sure, let’s bring more of these psychopaths into our country.

Indeed...
Do-gooders on this side of the ocean are blind to what transpires in these Arab countries.
While in the UAE, workers were most definitely separated from the indigenous. Having flown in & out of Dubai a few dozen times it was so obvious.
Those awaiting arrivals from SW Asia were all kept waiting outside the airport and not permitted indoors. Whole towns existed to keep them isolated from the native population...i.e. Sharjah, etc.
Get out of line and the consequences are severe.
Their passports are taken, they work at the whim of uncaring companies. Arab culture does not cater to the progressive mindset. All business, management and money handling is done by Arabs....

During my trips through southern Iraq it was common to see women working the fields with nary a swinging Richard in sight. Kuwait? fuhgeddaboudit....even worse....women ride in the back seat with window shades in force so nobody will lay eyes on them.
Different world, culture. American feminists will never understand how good they have it here.

I would march through Chicago alone at night in a Klan outfit before I ever worked in a dump like Qatar. A close friend of mine who worked for a Qatari company had the worst experience there. First she got a COVID vaccine against her will as a condition of employment, then she was terminated after contracting COVID despite the vaccine.

F#%& that sh!t-hole and everyone in it.

They probably died of heat stroke working 18 hours per day in 125 degree heat with only a couple of bowls of rice per day. I worked at Dubai Dry Docks and at night some of the laborers would collect dead fish from the dry dock and cook them with welding torches for extra food.

Still, Arab racism and Islamic-Apartheid is greater than whatever might unite them.

Remember FIFA banned Hungarian fans from the stands during a game because of “racist” chants. However FIFA is fine with a nation that basically has an apartheid system, allows slavery via tearing up of visas and passports of foriegn workers to host the World Cup.
