the department suddenly huge numbers started coming to the hospital all of a sudden the hospital became phone for christians for titan. once again and the west bank recently a curfew on weekends and night was already in place to correct the pandemic by the wait for more back scenes continues. preparations for the football world cup to be held in qatar in 2022 are in full swing but the allegations of human rights abuses of dogged organizers with media reports claiming that more than 6 and a half 1000 migrant workers have died on construction projects that's prompted one dutch company which is traditionally supplied the pitches for big oil events to boycott the event. grass grown in the netherlands is used in football stadiums around the world and organizers of the 2022 world cup hope to play on sod from hendrix could result in but the company has pulled out of negotiations pointing to
9:21 pm
the staggering number of fatalities among workers in the run up to the tournament. the reason a report in the guardian newspaper shows more than 6500 migrant workers have died in qatar over the last 10 years most of them from south asia but the death toll could be higher reports from the philippines in kenya included in the guardian's report. officials claim there were only a handful of deaths are world cup construction sites which include stadiums and airport roads and public transportation projects. there are around 2000000 foreign workers in qatar and most of them come from south asian countries but some hail from africa nations like kenya. human rights organizations have repeatedly criticized the working conditions and despite new laws into taller they say that the conditions are still poor. look at this closer with a gentle do no don't do business welcome to now why is hendrix wouldn't only taking
9:22 pm
this decision now well the trigger really does seem to have been that guardian report sallying the number of deaths in the last 10 years since qatar won hosting rights for the games the company has been quoted in the media saying this would have been a very lucrative contract in the millions but some things are more important than money although it would appear that this would have been crystallising for them for a while they said that they visited qatar a few times and saw that some of the construction crew weren't wearing proper protective clothing pointing to kind of alone safety standards and construction sites of course are very dangerous places to work you can fall things can fall on you you can get electrocuted and so wind but 6500 dead migrant workers that points a certain kind of carelessness towards the lives of people in dangerous jobs and that is the point where the companies said no actually this is untenable for us but they have this other point where they said that they referred to low quality norms
9:23 pm
in qatar as they call it over the handling and the transport of the product that they were meant to deliver the turf or the stadiums and those things taken together cause them to boycott the games being by the way the 1st major supplier to do so right and how reliable is about 6 now 1000 death toll still you know 2000000 people were hired in qatar from other countries in order to work on various projects linked to the games now as such that would make it seem like the $6500.00 figure is quite a low ceiling fade. now just to review on top of 7 stadiums that they've already built they're also building a new airport roads public transport system hotels and so on and the figures from the guardian are you know are by no means comprehensive they only come from 5 countries so bangladesh nepal pakistan india and sri lanka but other countries are also a major. error are also major exporters shall we say of foreign workers for
9:24 pm
qatar the philippines being one of them for example i knew plenty of people who went to qatar after we left school case in point a. new airport that i mentioned 65 percent of the construction crew is filipino i would be hard pressed to imagine that there isn't a single death case there but you know for its part qatar says that it accepts the fatalities it's in line with what you would expect when it comes to such an event on the other hand it doesn't help that these deaths of course are often listed as deaths due to natural causes due to acute respiratory or heart failure often listed without the benefit of an autopsy and that makes it easy to dodge accountability and blame and briefly does it look like other companies will join in. well i think the closer we get to the games and the more the public becomes aware of the migrant migrant workers issues in qatar we are going to see increased scrutiny on companies
