World Cup 2022 chairman Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Thani said that the Qatari government took the rights of workers very seriously. Recent allegations have surfaced that immigrant workers - many of the Nepalese - have had their human rights violated as Qatar puts in place infrastructure to host the soccer tournament. In October this year, British newspaper The Guardian reported that 70 workers from Nepal had died on construction sites since the start of 2012.
