Amnesty quickly expects clarity from FIFA: “Theyve been training for a while now”

Amnesty International hopes to quickly clarify a compensation fund from FIFA. The fund will be created to assist relatives with the status of deceased workers during the construction of stadiums in Qatar.
Floor Beumer from Amnesty International was present in Zeist on Saturday to watch the documentary Dont Turn Your Back. The documentary shows meetings between migrants and relatives of people who worked at the stadiums in Qatar. Weve been asking FIFA to come up with a concrete proposal for a compensation fund for a while now, says Beumer, recorded by the Algemeen Dagblad. A fund where it should be made easy for people from Nepal to come up with a claim. But FIFA has been training and has been saying for a while: weve come up with something.
Amnesty has been making the request for months and the case seems to be finally moving forward. Undoubtedly, there will be a lot of discussion within the World Football Association. We
ve now heard that theyre coming up with something at the end of September or early October. Recently, the Dutch national team was called upon to support the initiative. Amnesty and the KNVB are on the same page when it comes to the compensation fund. We also believe that the victims or relatives should be compensated, with employers/construction companies, the government in Qatar, the organizing committee and FIFA, the KNVB recently said in a statement.
