“Qatar is a dictatorial state on a charm offensive. We must not be their useful idiots. On the contrary, we must give them a hard shoulder tackle in their attempt to sell their state as something other than a raw dictatorship state. ” This is the call from Karsten Hønge (SF) on Tuesday, when Minister of Culture Joy Mogensen (S) was called in consultation by the Foreign Affairs Committee.
That statement comes in the wake of several reports from human rights organizations and statements from migrant workers who, since Qatar was awarded the 2022 World Cup finals, have reported on slave-like conditions in the desert state, including human rights violations, non-payment of wages, denial of freedom of movement and rudeness. working conditions.
Joy Mogensen (S) fully acknowledges all these factors. But this does not indicate that the Minister of Culture intends to give the dictatorship state “a hard shoulder tackle”. It is rather a handover to the sports organizations, which she believes bears the responsibility.
“It is the international sports federations that make the decisions about where events are to be held, and which must therefore also be on target for the decisions. The government generally supports our sports institutions, which we perceive as responsible and with a solid democratically based starting point, “says Joy Mogensen and adds:
