David Beckham Urged To Speak Out on Qatar World Cup 2022
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,”
