Director of the world cup organization in Qatar: “We were doomed from the start’

Nasser Al Khater, executive director of the world organization in Qatar, we can’t talk about all of the criticism from the outside, at the global football tournament on the planet by 2022. According to the policy-maker has in his country never get a fair chance, and there will be a negative picture.

In december 2010, it was announced that Qatar, the world cup in 2022, it was allowed to organize, and that gave a lot of resistance. It was in the first place, the criticism of the organisation of the final tournament in the summer because of the heat. In 2015, it was therefore finally decided that the world cup in the winter is finished as well.

Furthermore, it appeared from the researches of, inter alia, Amnesty International, human rights in Qatar, in violation and in accordance with, The Guardian will die, every year, hundreds of workers at the many of the new stadiums to work. Also, the women from china are seriously disadvantaged, there is little freedom of the press in the country and follows the law, not in accordance with the international standards.

“Of Qatar, through the media, is unfair, please contact us. I’m thinking that, yeah,” said Al Khater in the interview with CNN. “Qatar was sentenced by the court. We talked about the weather, about corruption, about the health of their employees. Some of the things that we may realize, and that is where we want to work with.”

Al Khater is also the case with a study by Amnesty International which revealed that Qatar has done too little to improve conditions for the working class. “There has been for many years, research has been done on it, but there was nothing to be found. Is there a bijzinnetje in the media, and it’s not fair to us.”

Had to always prove them wrong’

According to Al Khater, Qatar does not have a fair opportunity to show that the land is suitable for the football world cup.

“In the West, you are innocent until proven guilty, but this was not so,” says Al Khater. “We are guilty of, and had again and again to prove them wrong. If it’s in a different country was to the same standards, then it is used?”

Al Khater was the only opposition in the world cup in Qatar would expect, but says he is surprised by the amount of criticism from the outside. “The journalists, who criticize, have never been in Qatar, and has been. That is why I say to come to the united arab emirates. Write down what you want to write, but give yourself some credibility.”
