Sri Lankan, Nepalese and Indian workers who migrated to Qatar to build luxury offices for the 2022 World Cup organizers have reportedly not been paid 13 months' wages.
 
However, the organizers of 2022 World Cup said in a statement that they were heavily "dismayed" to learn of the behavior of Lee Trading with regard to the timely payment of its workers.
 
According to the Guardian, migrant laborers make up the bulk of the workforce but revealed that they have few rights and some workers had been left stranded in the country, working for as little as 0.85 dollar a day (50p), the BBC reported.
 
In May Qatar vowed to improve the rights of migrants in the Gulf state amid growing alarm at their treatment.
 
The project was commissioned by the Qatari government and was carried out by migrants working for the contractor Lee Trading. It costs 4.25m dollars and the offices were fitted with expensive etched glass and handmade Italian furniture.
 
But Lee Trading's collapse led to Amnesty International raising the case with Qatar's prime minister last November after many of the workers were left stranded. (DNA India)
