David Beckham Urged To Speak Out on Qatar World Cup 2022

BoomRadioNG | October 26, 2021

Former England captain David Beckham has been urged to speak out about the “deeply concerning” human rights situation in Qatar by Amnesty International.


Beckham has signed a lucrative deal to be a 2022 Qatar World Cup ambassador. Human rights issues in the host country have been under scrutiny since Qatar was awarded the tournament in 2010.

Amnesty’s Sacha Deshmukh said; “Qatar’s human rights record is troubling, from the country’s longstanding mistreatment of migrant workers, to its curbs on free speech and the criminalization of same-sex relations,”


He added; “It’s not surprising that David Beckham wants to be involved in such a major football event, but we would urge him to learn about the deeply concerning human rights situation in Qatar and be prepared to speak out about it,”
