QATAR CLOSELY MONITORS VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS: MEDIA

DOHA, Qatar, the host of the World Cup in 2022, is carefully monitoring violation of human rights in Doha, reported Qatar-based newspaper, Qatar Tribune, on Sunday.

Saad Salem al Dosari, the Assistant Director of the Human Rights Department, in the Ministry of Interior, stressed that, the ministry is committed to maintaining human rights.

“The department addressed 1,811 complaints and requests, received from the public in 2017,” he said.

He added that, some cases had been referred to the Qatari public prosecutor’s office.

Qatar has been under pressure and spotlight, since it won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup, seven years ago.

Earlier in Mar, Qatar launched three committees to resolve labour disputes and complaints.

In 2017, Qatar announced a new labour law, that aimed at making it easier for migrant workers to change jobs, leave the country and file complaints.
