Qatar 2022: Norwegian FA head criticises FIFA failure to publish human rights & remedy assessment

"Norwegian FA president urges Fifa to publish report on Qatar World Cup,"

The football executive who has sought to hold Fifa to its commitments on human rights in Qatar has called on the governing body to publish its report on possible failings at the World Cup.

Lise Klaveness, the president of the Norwegian Football Federation, wrote to Fifa a year ago calling for an inquest into the legacy left by the Qatar World Cup and, specifically, a lack of financial remedy for mistreated migrant workers. In response the Fifa president, Gianni Infantino, commissioned a report from the organisation’s human rights and social responsibility subcommittee. That report is yet to arrive and Klaveness argues that a lack of transparency over publication speaks to a broader problem within Fifa.

“We are really waiting for the report,” Klaveness told the Guardian. “My impression, not through direct channels but the word on the ground, was that it should be ready around Christmas and it was not. So we are now a bit [further on] and more impatiently waiting for it. It’s one year after the World Cup, it should come now.

“I think it’s due. It’s very important that it’s transparent and now we don’t really know when it’s coming or how it will come. I think it would be an advantage if Fifa used this process to deal with what is part of the problem, to be predictable and transparent because that is part of the job now, to make a transparent report.”...

Sources have suggested to the Guardian that a draft of the Qatar report has been submitted to Fifa. There is no set date for publication.
