one of the most controversial sporting events in history, accusations of human rights violations, abuse of migrant workers, poor treatment of women in the lgbtq community. ktvu is james torres examines these issues. videos from the group. human rights watch detailed the life of migrant workers in qatar . millions of migrant workers have built the infrastructure that was needed to host this world cup of something like 1.2 million visitors, and unfortunately they faced up widespread number of very serious abuses building this world cup pages. the deputy director of the rw chapter in the middle east. since 2010 when fifa awarded hosting rights to qatar h r w kept record of reported worker abuse within the host nation. we're talking about thousands of unexplained deaths , widespread wage theft. paying illegal recruitment fees. many of those workers signed on to be part of what's called the kafala
5:47 pm
system, offers visas and opportunities to earn fast cash , but very few laws protecting workers' health and rights were upheld by guitar. that system also required an employer signature to quit a job. people no longer wanted to work. there's kind of stacks of digital, you know, records over in these dozen years, but, you know, fifa is one of these institutions that when they want to, they really try not to listen, especially when it comes to come to human rights concerns . fifa says it did listen, the international organization sent me a statement saying in part, fifa is implementing an unprecedented due diligence process in relation to the protection of workers involved in the fifa world cup. qatar 2022 fifa has actively push for the implementation of broader labor reforms that apply to all companies and projects across the country and benefit all workers in qatar university of san francisco sports management professor michael goldman says
5:48 pm
that's all true pressured qatar to get rid of the kafala system and pass a number of laws to reform the migrant workers situation. could one say that that is a positive benefit. of awarding a tournament like this to a country that wanted to use the tournament to facilitate some of these changes on balance. yes. would we have liked to see that stuff happen earlier? sure because those changes weren't earlier. some question. if ethically, the world cup should move forward in a country with such a history of turning a blind eye to abuse. don haider is the executive director of the markelis center of applied ethics at santa clara university, the world cup and the olympics are supposed to celebrate humanity supposed to celebrate, you know, are what we have in common and yet when they are awarded to countries that have these poor records, um it's does almost always taint the event overall. so why did fifa
5:49 pm
select qatar as a host nation? the federation pitched to the world. the idea of broadening horizons and taking the tournament to the middle east for the first time in history if qatar had a massive population and was a hotbed of football development. it would make a lot more sense in terms of moving the world cup. there are hosting the world cup there, but many point to fifa's allegations of corruption, specifically dozens of fifa officials receiving suspensions and indictments for accepting bribes. president in 2010 set bladder nowadays calling qatar's winning bid a mistake. i don't think the idea of ah, of ah world cup tournament is defined countries that have horrible track records on civil rights and human rights and go there to try to work for change. you know, so the way it was awarded and the choice of awarding it to me is very suspect now leading up to the
