UN gives Qatar a year to end forced labour of migrant workers

Qatar has been given 12 months to end migrant worker slavery or face a possible United Nations investigation.

The warning sets the 2022 World Cup host nation on a path to becoming only the fifth ever country to face a formal inquiry by the UN’s International Labour Organisation into allegations of forced labour after Burma, Haiti, Liberia and Portugal. It could ultimately pave the way for international sanctions.
