- Proceedings against employer Salam Petroleum begin
- Filipino worker fell when fixing lights at training base
Qatari authorities have opened criminal proceedings against the employer of a Filipino migrant worker who died at a World Cup training base during the tournament last year.
Salam Petroleum is being investigated after the worker, named only as Alexander, fell when fixing a set of lights at Sealine Beach resort, which hosted the Saudi Arabia national team during Qatar 2022. A court will now consider the case after it was initiated by Qatar’s public prosecution.
