O Eurodeputado social-democrata Mário David foi hoje eleito em Estrasburgo para presidir à Delegação Ad Hoc do Parlamento Europeu que se desloca ao Qatar entre 22 a 25 de Março próximos para avaliar a situação dos trabalhadores migrantes naquele país.

 

No seguimento de diversas queixas relacionadas com as condições de vida e de trabalho dos imigrantes que constrõem as instalações desportivas para o Campeonato do Mundo de Futebol de 2022, o Parlamento Europeu decidiu enviar uma delegação composta por 7 eurodeputados.

 

Durante a visita, a Delegação será recebida pelo Emir do Qatar, Sheikh Tamin bin Hamad Al Thani, e terá encontros com o Ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros, Khalid Al-Attiyah, com o Presidente do Parlamento, com o Comité Nacional dos Direitos Humanos, com o Centro de Media de Doha, a Fundação para o Combate do Tráfego de Seres Humanos e com a Fundação para a Proteção de Mulheres e Crianças.

 

Os deputados europeus terão também encontros com a Central Sindical do Qatar, com Associações Empresariais, ONGs e visitarão obras em curso em Doha, bem como os campos residenciais dos trabalhadores migrantes.

 

Note to Editors
The EPP Group is by far the largest political group in the European Parliament with 274 Members from 27 Member States.
