Amnesty International has said that Qatar had failed to prevent violations against World Cup workers, Skysports reported. 

Qatar's bid brought increased scrutiny on its labour laws and, as a result, the small but rich country has made a series of promises over the last decade to improve matters.

But in a 19-page report, titled 'Reality Check: The state of migrant workers' rights with less than four years to go until the Qatar 2022 World Cup', Amnesty International has claimed the reality of the reform process has not matched the rhetoric.

In a statement, the human rights' organisation's deputy director of global issues Stephen Cockburn said: "Time is running out if the Qatari authorities want to deliver a legacy we can all cheer - namely a labour system that ends the abuse and misery inflicted upon so many migrant workers every day.
